SkyMatters is your monthly guide to the night sky in association with Blackrock Castle Observatory and the Irish Examiner.

Keep an eye out for the Supermoon on October 16!  The Moon will appear larger as it rises and throughout the night. The increased size is due to its relative closeness to the Earth.
