The last super moon of 2020 rose in the night sky on Thursday.

The super moon phenomenon occurs when the moon is within 10% of its closest distance to Earth at the full Moon.

May's full Moon - at the height of the Northern Hemisphere spring - is also called a "Flower Moon" - hence Thursday's "Full-flower Super Moon".

The year's two previous super moons occurred in March and April.

Clouds over much of Europe and Asia obscured views, and streets remained relatively quiet, with many countries still imposing coronavirus-related restrictions.

But from Hong Kong to Caracas, some donned masks and ventured out to take photos of the spectacle.
