Not sure how many of your were up at 0500 this morning but if you were did you happen to see the appearence of the moon? We were on a fire call last night and the lads thought they were seeing things lol. Dont know what event was happening but their appeared to be planet behind the moon and the moon itself was brighter than normal with an extremely bright section to the side. Above the moon there was an extremley bright star taking on the same shaped appearance on its side. I havent got a clue what was occuring, I had a scoot on the net but it seems there were no eclipse last night...any ideas??
Edit....it appears it might be an event called a super moon?..rather like the pic attatched but much much more vivid and stunning as there appeared a planet behind, not sure if it some kind of illusion
