Super moon looms large over Gladstone, bringing high tides

ASTRONOMY fans gazed into the sky as the 'super moon' shone over Gladstone this weekend.

That official moment marking the moon's closest point to Earth this year was at 9.30pm last night according to NASA.

The moon appeared up to 14 per cent bigger and 30 per cent brighter than the usual full moon.

On-lookers said the moon took on a slightly yellow colour as it rose but changed to a silver tone as it climbed higher in the sky.

High tides are expected this week as a result of the super moon.
