Stargazers across Kent have been dazzled by a "supermoon" - and they took these stunning pictures.
The moon appeared bigger and brighter than normal last night as it was 15,000 miles closer to earth than on average.
It hit peak brightness at 11.34pm, with many taking photos of the lunar spectacle - two days before a bright meteor shower reaches its peak.
Known as the perigee moon or "supermoon", experts worked out the moon appeared 14% larger and 30% brighter than normal as it reached the point in its orbit closest to the Earth.
Readers have been sharing some of their best images of the biggest full moon of the year - and we would love to see yours.
