Saturday, September 17, 2016, 11:04 AM - The last full moon of the summer lit up the night sky Friday night.

Known as the Harvest Moon, it was the closest full moon to the autumn equinox, which takes place on Sept. 22 in the Northern Hemisphere.

Friday night's dazzling display coincided with a penumbral eclipse, which showcased a part of the Earth's shadow crossing paths with the moon. It was visible from Europe, Africa, Australia and Asia. While, those in North and South America were unable to see this rare phenomenon, they were still able to view the Harvest Moon in all its giant and gorgeous glory.
