This past weekend’s Supermoon spawned some of the most beautiful photos we’ve seen in years and probably will see for a long time — the next one won’t come around until November 2038, to be specific. But local photographers, both professional and amateur, made sure to take advantage of the closest view we’ve had of the full moon since 1948. Here are just a few of our favorites from Instagram. Special recognition should definitely go to photographer Sean Mathis for his outstanding array of Austin-centric Supermoon photos (we’ve included four of them here — we couldn’t pick just one!)

Did we miss one of the best? Be sure to drop us a link in the comments!
