This week, the breathtaking supermoon has served as the best reason to venture outside at night without doing something you might regret in the morning.
If you haven't had the chance to embrace the supermoon, we've got you covered with all of the mindblowing photos you'll need to comprehend exactly what you just missed out on.
In addition to the photos that flooded the internet after the supermoon sightings this week, an amazing video was uploaded to YouTube by The Inertia that features a squad of surfers.
These brave souls decided to ditch the selfies and actually surf underneath the brightest supermoon in 69 years.
The video description reads,
The last 24 hours provided the perfect opportunity to appreciate our earth in a rare way as it marks a 'supermoon' – the likes of which haven't been seen in 69 years. What is a supermoon? Well, it's when a full moon or a new moon coincides with the closest approach to the Earth on its elliptical orbit. Scientists call it a perigee-syzygy, but superman is a but catchier, eh?
The footage begins with the surfers taking to the beach in Los Angeles as they gear up their surfboards with vibrant glowsticks for their supermoon surf session.
The description continues.
Not only was the lineup uncrowded, always a plus in Los Angeles, but hoots and electric, moonlit shakas made for an experience that re-energizes good vibes in a way the world needs right now. The cool thing is that you could probably do this any night – gather friends and take advantage of how beautiful our coastal community is.
Hmm, that doesn't sound like too bad of an idea... Surfing at night while covered in glow sticks with your good friends? Good vibes all around?
Add a rare supermoon to that equation, and you just might never want to return to land! And to think, we won't see anything like this again until about 2034...
