Last night the moon came closer to the earth than it has been since 1948, creating a supermoon.

Whilst in the UK a cloudy sky was a disappointment to some stargazers, many across the world were still able to capture amazing pictures of the phenomenon.

The moon will not come this close to the earth again until 2034, though there is still a chance to see a bright moon tonight. However this one won't be a full moon.
