A supermoon rises in front of a high-rise building in Kolkata on November 14, 2016.

On 14 November, the moon—in its full-moon phase—was closest to Earth. And, this wasn't your usual Supermoon. This was the nearest that a full moon has come to Earth since January 26, 1948. The full moon won't get this close again until November 25, 2034.

In India, the Supermoon was seen from around 6:22 PM IST on Monday.

Take a look at these mesmerising photos of the Supermoon from various cities across India.
