On Sunday night, the moon gave the world a once-in-a-generation show. There was a rare combination of a supermoon and a lunar eclipse, giving the moon a red tinge and giving the whole phenomenon the catchy hashtag of #superbloodmoon. Usually, a supermoon happens when there's a full moon and it's the closest possible distance to Earth. And a lunar eclipse happens when the moon, Earth, and the sun are lined up so that the moon is in Earth's shadow. Sunday night was a rare combo; the last time there was a "blood supermoon" was in 1982, and the next time it's set to appear is 2033. 

If you missed it and don't want to wait 18 years to see the phenomenon again, check out these incredible photos from around the world.
