Skywatchers prepare for 'supermoon'

Claire Cottingham

BBC Live reporter

Thanks to Wayne Spring for this fantastic photo of last nights #supermoon - but tonight the moon will actually be brighter and bigger than yesterday as Earth's satellite makes its closest approach since 1948.

Our best chance to see it will be on Monday evening, although the moon reaches its closest approach at 11:21 GMT when it will be 356,509 km away.

To observers, it will appear about 7% larger than normal and about 15% brighter - although the human eye is barely able to discern that difference.
