Why’s this moon so super? The full moon is taking place when the moon is closest to Earth, which basically means that the moon will look really bright and big in the sky. Super moons appear at their biggest when they are closest to the horizon, that is, when they are rising and setting.
You’ll have to be up in the wee hours of the morning on Wednesday, April 8 to catch the pink moon at its best from Spain (4.35am, to be exact) and around Europe. Stargazers in Asia and Australia will get a glimpse of the super moon later on the same day. The evening before, on Tuesday, April 7 is when it’ll be lighting up skies all across the US.
