If you missed the Supermoon on Sunday night then fear not - we have it covered! We're sharing these stunning photos taken by our contributing photographer Phil Parker in Larnaca, Cyprus.

The supermoon phenomenon happens when the Moon reaches its closest point to Earth, known as a perigee Moon. The Moon circuits the Earth in an elliptical or oval orbit - a supermoon occurs when the perigee Moon is also a full Moon. When this happens Earth's satellite appears about 7% larger and 15% brighter.

According to Phil he took the photos whilst in Oroklini, Larnaca and also near Dhekalia. The photos were taken using a Nikon P900 camera with a zoom lens:

Phil Parker describes himself as an amateur photographer and has been uploading photos to the Cyprus Eastern Forum for many years. He used a Nikon camera to take these shots and says "the pleasure I get from my photos is knowing that people are enjoying them".
