Photographers around the world captured the moon’s rise on Sunday, eagerly anticipating a rare supermoon eclipse.

Sunday’s moon combined two phenomena: a supermoon, when the moon is closest in its path around the earth, as well as a blood moon, a nickname for the reddish glow the moon takes on during a lunar eclipse.
