DID you spot the 'supermoon' over the weekend and this morning?

Yesterday the full moon coincided with the moon's closest approach to the Earth, making the moon look about 7 per cent bigger than average.

The happens because the moon's orbit around Earth is not a perfect circle; it is elliptical (oval shaped).

The point on the orbit closest to Earth is called the perigee and the farthest is the apogee. On average the distance it is about 238,000 miles.

Astrologer Richard Nolle first coined the term supermoon in 1979.

Cloudy weather meant only glimpses were seen last night but if you grabbed a shot like Swindon Camera Club members Jack Groves, Tom Scholes and Lindsey Stevens did we'd love to see it!
