The moon is the closest to Earth since 1948 at a distance of 356,509 kilometres (221,524 miles), creating what NASA described as 'an extra-supermoon'

Skygazers headed to high-rise buildings, ancient forts and beaches on Sunday to witness the closest "supermoon" to Earth in almost seven decades, hoping for dramatic photos and spectacular surf.
