In pictures: Supermoon shines over Northern Ireland
Readers' pictures of the supermoon that shone over Northern Ireland on Sunday night.
On Sunday night, Northern Ireland had the best supermoon it will have until 2018. Paul Evans took this picture of it over Larne, County Antrim.
A supermoon appears when a full moon occurs at, or very close to, the moon's perigee - when it is close to Earth in its elliptical orbit. The full moon will therefore appear bigger and brighter than usual. Brian McCalden captured this image of it over Bangor, County Down.
The moon comes to perigee every month, but it is only about once a year that it coincides closely with a full moon. This picture was taken in Portstewart by Ken Cox.
This image of the supermoon was taken by Dawn Beattie from Holywood in County Down while she was on holiday in Bled, Slovenia.
There is a chance the moon will also look bigger and brighter than usual on Monday night. Desmond Loughrey took this stunning picture over Limavady.
There will be another comparably good supermoon on 15 November 2016, but this one is not expected to be bettered until New Year's Day, 2018. Brian McCalden captured it over Glengormley.
