Supermoon over Rome

Biggest and brightest supermoon in almost 70 years.

On the night of 14 November, the moon will be the closest it has been to Earth since January 1948, appearing up to 14 per cent larger and 30 per cent brighter than an average moon.

The so-called supermoon occurs when a full or new moon makes its closest approach to Earth and, even at a distance of more than 350,000km, it will seem much larger and brighter than normal.

The phenomenon is not expected to happen again until 25 November 2034.
