    Skywatchers have enjoyed spectacular views of this month's "supermoon" - when the Moon appears larger and brighter in the sky.
    The supermoon phenomenon happens when the Moon reaches its closest point to Earth, known as a perigee Moon.
    The Moon circuits the Earth in an elliptical or oval orbit - a supermoon occurs when the perigee Moon is also a full Moon.
    The supermoon was the last opportunity to see one in 201
