Nevertheless, last night was a treat for those who trained their scopes on sky-ward.

Skygazers from around the globe were left awestruck last night as the much-awaited Super Snow Moon swam across the sky.

A supermoon (no relation to Superman) is when the full moon is closest to the Earth, and according to EarthSky, yesterday's full moon reached its exact full phase closer to the time of perigee than any other full moon this year.

Sainsbury's-Asda merger in jeopardy
Sainsbury's boss Mike Coupe vowed to continue fighting for the takeover and claimed the CMA has "moved the goalposts". Sainsbury's has insisted the merger group would lower prices by around 10% on products customers buy regularly.

The phenomenon made its first appearance on February 18 and is expected to be seen today. The reason it's the biggest supermoon is because this is the closest the moon will get to earth all year.

The reason it's also called a snow moon is because it's the second full moon of winter. This can make the moon appear up to 14% bigger and 30% brighter. "This "moon illusion" happens when the moon is close to the horizon and there are objects within our line of sight such as trees or buildings", says NASA astronomer Mitzi Adams.

The first full moon of 2019 rose in the early hours of January 21.
