The super moon hit Australia as bright as can be on Monday night -- but of course it did. It is the biggest and brightest moon since 1948, and we're not expected to see another as bright until 2034.

NASA claims it will be the "closest full moon to date in the 21st century", so here's how it shone from all parts of the country on Monday night.

Experts said the moon could appear 14 percent larger and 30 percent brighter, so here's what the photos on social media revealed.

However, many Aussies in Sydney and Canberra caught only a small glimpse of the super moon. Cloudy conditions dampened the view, leaving onlookers slightly disappointed and some even sceptical.
