Supermoon


by Ian Hamilton

This weekend saw the “Supermoon” ….. it appeared 14% larger and 30% brighter than normal. Why, well it happens when there’s a new Moon (or full Moon) that occurs when the Moon’s either at or near its closest approach to the Earth. It looks bigger when it’s on the horizon next to trees or buildings.

It should be also around tonight as well (and the forecast is for a clear evening) so if you missed it you’ve another chance! There’s another, even more spectacular one expected on 28 Sept 2015, and the largest Supermoon until 2034 will occur on 14 Nov 2016. Enjoy your Moon-gazing!
