The supermoon had people staring wide-eyed at the heavens last night

Some cloud hampered things for Irish stargazers.

STARGAZERS ACROSS THE world were gazing upwards last night to catch a glimpse of the final “supermoon” of this year.

A supermoon occurs when the moon is closest to earth on its orbit and there’s also a full moon in the sky.

The phenomenon makes the moon appear larger and brighter and photographers across Ireland and the world were out capturing it in the December sky.
