Every night, the moon travels across a sea of stars in the sky. However, last night was special: the moon was the closest full moon to Earth in the past 68 years. According to NASA, it won’t be this close to Earth again until 2034.

Here at Comvite, we wondered what that would look like from the top of Volcán Acatenango, a stratovolcano with an elevation of 3976 meters that sits 31.6km away from La Antigua Guatemala. So, we travelled up there with a few friends. Enjoy:
