Photographers around the world ventured outside Sunday (Aug. 10) to snap photos of the bright, full "supermoon" rising in the night sky.

August's full moon, called a supermoon because it is occurred when the moon was closest to Earth in its orbit, wowed skywatchers, inspiring some of them to turn their cameras skyward to catch breathtaking views of the biggest full moon of 2014.

Some photographers had to wait for a break in the clouds to capture their images, while others chased the moon to different observing sites.
