CANADA LYNX BY MOONLIGHT: Marty Samis lives in the Yukon Territory of far northern Canada, and on the night of the historic Supermoon in November he took this photo of a Canada lynx and shared it with us. "Seeing a lynx is always a privilege," Marty said when I wrote to ask him about it. "I spotted this one walking in the moonlight and hoped it would hang around long enough for me to get more than just a glimpse. Fortunately, the lynx was happy to sit and watch me for ten minutes, even as I set up my camera and tripod." For more great shots, go to our Nature Photos page.

Video of the Week: Supermoon Across America

We made a video featuring some of the November Supermoon photos that our followers shared from all 50 states, the District of Columbia and eight countries. That full Moon was the brightest and largest since 1948. We encouraged everyone to get out to see and photograph it, and many people wrote to tell us how memorable their Moon-watching experience was.
