A supermoon occurs when the Moon is closest in its orbit to Earth, making it appear larger.
The eclipse, which gave the Moon a red tint, has been visible in West Africa, Western Europe, as well as North and South America, where the eclipse was seen on Sunday evening.
This phenomenon was last observed in 1982 and won't come again until 2033. Source: BBC.
Observers in the UK saw the Moon pass through the Earth's shadow in the early hours of Monday morning. We usually miss any solar activity because of cloud cover. But, for the last couple of nights, the skies have been clear. I peeked through the slatted blinds in my study last night, thinking I must have left an outside light on. But no—it as the moon illuminating the garden and sending rays right into the room. The white orb looked the size of a watermelon—as if it was sitting right next to my roof to the right. I wondered why it was so bright. Now I know. A supermoon was hovering overhead. I didn't see the blood moon though. Too busy sleeping.
Did you see the wonder of the supermoon?
