Los Angeles isn't the prime location for skywatching, but last Saturday brought a celestial phenomenon that couldn't be covered by city smog: a super moon, the biggest full moon of the year.

According to NASA Science News, the moon was the largest it has ever been in 20 years.

We've compiled KPCC listener-submitted photos into a gallery of the spectacle.
