‘Supermoon’ coincides with lunar eclipse

‘Supermoon’ coincides with lunar eclipse

A supermoon occurs when the Moon is in the closest part of its orbit to Earth, meaning it appears larger in the sky.

The eclipse – which made the Moon appear red – has been visible in North America, South America, West Africa and Western Europe.

This phenomenon was last observed in 1982 and won’t come again until 2033.
