A rare full supermoon lit up the skies last night for the first time in 70 years.

The moon appeared bigger and brighter than usual as it came 30,000km closer to earth than usual.

Sky-gazers across the globe flocked outside to spot the lunar phenomenon as it lit up the night sky.

Unfortunately in the UK, a thick layer of cloud ruined most people’s view, and the supermoon was barely visible in large swathes of the country.

But other countries were treated to a real light show, as the megamoon loomed large in the clear sky.

Here are some of the best pictures from across the world.
