2016 was full of surprises, some bad and some good, but one thing we could always rely on is the beauty Arizona has to offer.

Our state tends to show off a lot and that's OK with us! Thanks to our 12 News friends, we were able to share some wonderful images of Arizona - especially moon pictures.

Here are some of the best, shared on our social media channels thousands of times.
