Supermoon to light up the night sky on Monday!

A Supermoon will light up the night sky on Monday night across the UK.

The Worm Moon will be full on Monday, March 9, but will appear full from Sunday right through to Tuesday night. 

The Moon will be spectacularly bright and appear about seven per cent larger than a normal full moon. 

A supermoon occurs when the full moon nearly coincides with perigee – the point in the orbit of the moon at which it is nearest to the Earth.

‘Worm Moon’ is the common name for March’s full moon because at the time it appears the ground begins to soften and heaps of soil left by worms start to appear.
