Coincidence? We think not and neither did one astronomer.

"I like to think of it as the moon’s tribute to the great human endeavour to reach it and go beyond," ANU astronomer Dr Brad Tucker said.

The moon also put on a show for people in other cities around the world and plenty of space lovers waited out to see what she had to offer.
