The Supermoon was visible across Northern Ireland on Monday evening.
It is the closest the moon has been to Earth in 70 years.
The next Supermoon is expected in 2034, another 18 years away.
Astronomers said it was the most visible moon since 1948.
The moon appeared more visible in certain areas.
Those hoping to catch a glimpse of it have been advised to choose an area with a landmark for comparison.
This image from Scott Mairs managed to pick out the distinctive craters and rises of the moon's surface.
Terry Mosely from the Irish Astonomer's Association said that it was a rare occurrence for this particular super moon.
"A Supermoon happens every year or so, but this one happens to be an exceptionally close one," he said.
The prospect of the rare phenomenon was even enough to get people out on the promenade in Newcastle in the November weather.
In Newtownabbey, the moon was bright and clear, as Donna Sterritt's pictures show.
Brian J Brown captured this picturesque vista, with the moon shining brighter even than the streetlights.
Meanwhile in Markethill, Victor Houston framed his photo with a rather festive evergreen tree.
