The biggest and brightest full moon of the year arrived last night as our celestial neighbour passed closer to Earth than usual. The event was a "supermoon", the closest and therefore the biggest and brightest full moon of the year.
Eddie Howland sent us this picture of the 'super' moon just before Midnight in Burges Hill, in a break in the cloud that lasted just a few minutes.
The moon came within about 221,802 miles of the Earth. That is about 15,300 miles closer than average.
