                • It's the lightening that scares me, I don't mind the thunder. My grandmother used to say that when you hear thunder it is a soul going into heaven

                        I think I noticed as the storm was right over my house and I was watching were it was heading

                        Lightning strikes set two houses on fire in Dublin last night as Met Éireann issued an urgent thunderstorm warning.

                          • Irish stargazers will get a chance to see a super blue moon over the coming nights – the first time it will be visible since 2009.


                            Irish stargazers will get a chance to see a super blue moon over the coming nights the first time it will be visible since 2009.

                            The rare sight, which can be seen tonight, tomorrow night and Thursday night, will not be visible over Irish skies again until 2037, according to Astronomy Ireland.

                            It says that roughly once every two or three years, there can be two full moons in one calendar month and, when this happens, the second full moon is popularly known blue moon.

                            The organisation adds that the moon's distance from the Earth can vary by 15%, which causes a change in brightness of 30%.

                            When a full moon happens around the time that the moon is closest to Earth it is called a super moon, which usually occurs three times a year.

                                would be great to see it but it is cloudy again and I no longer have the energy to stay up late to see
