CARMEL, N.Y. -- Like a scene out of a fairy tale, the final Supermoon of 2016 put on a dazzling performance Wednesday night in the skies over Putnam County.

The Supermoon - at its largest and most impressive when it's still low near the horizon - blended with residents' Christmas lighting displays , and a frozen Lake Carmel, to create a virtual winter wonderland.

Daily Voice captured some of the magic, and also many of the impressive holiday lighting displays in the area.

We'll see three Supermoons in 2017 - May 25, June 24 and December 3.

A supermoon is the coincidence of a full moon or a new moon with the closest approach the moon makes to the Earth on its elliptical orbit, resulting in the largest apparent size of the lunar disk as seen from Earth.
