Supermoon

The “supermoon” phenomenon, which we could see last weekend, means the Moon appears up to 14% bigger and 30% brighter than usual, as it comes closer to the Earth . Despite the popular belief, scientists have dismissed the idea the perigee full moon, as it’s known, could cause strange behaviour – like lycanthropy – or natural disasters.( BBC news)
