Will we be able to see the biggest supermoon in 70 years on Merseyside ?

The biggest supermoon since 1948 will rise across the UK and Merseyside on Monday and there wont be one as close until 2034.

The moon will get brighter and closer than it has done in the last 68 years.

Will we see it on Merseyside ?

The weather is expected to be rainy and cloudy throughout the day, the thick cloud is expected to stay throughout the night too which means there will be a low chance of spotting the supermoon on Merseyside.

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.”

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