This week we have seen some super pictures taken by Nick Page Hayman from Weston’s big lights switch on as well as photos of Stars of Time, Film and Comic Con in the Tropicana. Martin Pearce also caught a spectacular shot of a plane silhouetted against the supermoon on Sunday 3, December, when the moon appeared larger in the sky than usual.

Each week we put together a gallery of pictures shared by Mercury readers through our image-sharing website iwitness24.
