For the first time since 1982, we experienced a total lunar eclipse of the moon coupled with a “super moon,” a phenomenon that makes the moon appear larger than usual because it is at its closest point with the Earth. This incredible occurrence won’t happen again until 2033.

Not everyone made it out to enjoy the super moon eclipse on Sunday night, and many people who did head out last night couldn’t even fully enjoy the eclipse because their views were obstructed by clouds. There’s nothing like seeing it in person, of course, but those of you for which that wasn’t an option can now enjoy the next best thing.

What follows below are the most stunning images we’ve found of Sunday night’s rare super moon lunar eclipse.
