January has been a double-whammy for those of you who watch the skies.

Earlier this month we were treated to a supermoon on New Year’s Day.

These occur when the full moon is facing the earth on a specific side that’s wider. It appears around 14% bigger and 30% brighter than your average full moon.

In a few days, we not only have another super moon, but a lunar eclipse, which will be a real sight to look out for.
