Thousand take in Moon
About 1000 people descended on Hearson Cove over two nights last week to catch a glimpse of the supermoon.
While the clouds somewhat overshadowed the spectacle those patient enough got what they came for, with the biggest moon in almost 70 years shining bright over the mudflats when it cleared the cloud cover overhead.
St Paul’s Primary School science teacher Jacob Windle took his telescopes to Hearson Cove on the Monday night and was kept busy, with more than 100 children and adults lining up to get a close up look at the spectacle.
The moon will not appear this big again until 2034.
