Like Croatia Sinke

Croatian island of Lastovo has the darkest sky in Europe, literally making it the best location for astronomic research on the continent. However, last night was quite bright in the country, thanks to the natural phenomenon popularly known as Supermoon. It happens when our friendly celestial neighbor enters perigee phase in its course, meaning it is at the closest point towards Earth.

This happens several times in a single year, with various levels of intensity. Last night, moon came closer for 1300 kilometers, causing its light to become 30% brighter. Resembling a gigantic bulb on the sky, it provided quite a scenery. Vampires and witches surely had their reason for celebration.

Our photographers are not astronomes, so instead of observing supermoon on Lastovo, they took pictures of it from lovely village of Komiza. Check out their work in a gallery below:
