NASA said: “This month’s is especially ‘super’ for two reasons: it is the only supermoon this year to be completely full, and it’s the closest moon to Earth since 1948, the moon won’t be this super again until 2034.”

The extra bright and large supermoon will occur on 14th November if skies are clear.

A supermoon occurs as its closest approach to earth which results in the moon looking about 14% larger and 30% brighter than usual.
