Sunday's Supermoon brought more images from across Southern California.

The moon reached its closest proximity to Earth at 4:32 a.m. PDT on Sunday. The result, a so-called Supermoon, appears up to 14% larger and 30% brighter than a typical full moon.

As on Saturday night, Sunday night had people reaching for their cameras to capture the Supermoon.

Here are some images aggregated from social media:

When the moon reached its perigee, it was 221,824 miles away from Earth — 16,176 miles closer than usual.

The supermoon may have a tiny effect on the Earth's tides, but even if you live near the beach, you probably won't notice. NASA officials say tides may be an inch higher than usual.
