The fine weather around New Zealand allowed many people to see last night's supermoon rise around 9pm. The Moon's orbit around our planet is tilted so it usually falls above or below the shadow of the Earth.

The third supermoon was expected to be the most interesting, becoming a blue moon, the second full moon in a calendar month.

A year ago the moon made its closest approach to the Earth since 1948, and it won't be this close again until November 25, 2034.

At the exact moment of full moon, it was 358,499km from Earth, closer than the average distance of 384,472km.

'Stranger Things' Season 3 Will Jump Ahead In Time Again
It's no shock that Netflix will be returning to Hawkins, Indiana, the site of one of the online network's biggest show . The Duffer brothers had already discussed their plans for a further two series ahead of the release of season two.

This is what the supermoon looked like for astronauts at the International Space Station.

However, 2018 will delight skywatchers with two supermoons, one on January 2nd and another just a few weeks later on January 31st.

While the moon is always a lovely sight in the sky, occasionally skywatchers are treated to a special "supermoon".

If you think you'll still be around, mark this on your calendar: The closest supermoon of the century will occur on December 6, 2052.
