16 Magical Photos of Temples with Full Moons

Did you know the biggest supermoon in almost 70 years appeared November 14? It is the biggest of the 21st century and the second to last full moon you'll see this year.

A supermoon happens when the moon becomes full at the point in its orbit when it is closest to the earth. Though they happen around every 13 months, this will be the largest supermoon since 1948, according to NASA scientists.

In honor of this event, we've compiled a photo gallery of temples under the light of a full moon. Enjoy!
