The so-called super moon has been admired tonight around the world.

A super moon refers to a situation in which the Moon is in the perigee during the full moon, or in its orbit at the closest possible point to Earth. In this case, the Moon looks bigger than usual when viewed from Earth.

  • The video above shows how the super moon is rising in the Middle East.

The super moon on Wednesday night is the largest and brightest of 2020.
