DENVER – We were lucky enough here in Colorado across most of the state to have clear enough skies to take a gander at the first “supermoon” of 2021 – the Super Pink Moon.

The moon appeared to be bigger and brighter than normal because it was about 25,000 miles closer to the earth than it typically is. The peak occurred just after 9:30 p.m. MT Monday but will be visible into Wednesday morning.

Here are a few photos of the Super Pink Moon captured by photographers in Colorado and across the country and world:

Taken this evening from the hills on the west side of town. By the time the moon was finally visible through the thick clouds, it was a lot higher in the sky. I took the liberty to move it back down into the frame."
