DUBAI, UNITED ARAB EMIRATES – NOVEMBER 14: A ‘supermoon’ is pictured rising over the desert in Dubai on November 14, 2016 in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. A Supermoon occurs when the perigee (closest approach by the Moon to Earth) coincides with it being full (completely illuminated by the Sun). This time it will appear 7% larger and 15% brighter than normal. Although the next Supermoon will occur next month, the moon won’t be this close to Earth again until November 2034.

The biggest, brightest moon of 2020 will light up the sky tonight. Monday’s ‘supermoon’ will appear brighter and about seven percent larger than a normal full moon. It’s also known as the Worm Moon, Crow Moon, and Sap Moon.
Supermoons will also appear on April 8th and May 7th of this year. We’ll also get a rare ‘Blue Moon’ – when two full moons happen in the same month – on Halloween night, October 31st.
