Yle asked its audience to send in photos of the supermoon seen over Finland early Monday morning.

Early risers in Finland witnessed a rare trifecta in the skies Monday morning: a full lunar eclipse of a full ‘supermoon’, a moon that appears larger because its orbit brings it closer to the earth. Because the Earth's atmosphere extends beyond the planet, sunlight passes through it and falls onto the moon, giving it a rusty, blood-red colour. Several Yle readers contributed pictures of the event, and we share the best of them with you here.
