The first supermoon of 2020 will give the biggest and brightest look at the moon in nearly year this weekend.

The supermoon will be visible over Wirral during Saturday night and early on Sunday morning.

Supermoons happen when the full moon is at its closest point in its orbit of Earth, making it seem bigger and brighter than usual.

The exact point when the moon will be closett to earth will be at 7:34am on Sunday

However, with storm ciara set to batter the region it may be tricky trying to catch a glimpse.

Wirral has been issued two days of weather warnings on Saturday and Sunday.

Forecasters warn that winds of up to 80 mph will hit, bringing large waves, possible power cuts and delays to transport.

But don’t worry if you can’t see it, the next supermoon will be exactly a month later on March 9th.
