Supermoon in pictures: Biggest Full Moon of 2020 lifts spirits during coronavirus lockdown

The April Pink Moon appeared bigger and brighter last night because it crept exceptionally close to our planet.

As the Moon races around our planet, it follows an elliptic path that brings it closer or farther from us every night.

When the Moon reaches its lowest orbit of Earth, it hits the so-called lunar perigee.

If a Full Moon happens to fall within 90 percent of lunar perigee, we witness a bigger-than-usual Supermoon.

Supermoons are enjoyed worldwide as the spectacle is visible everywhere in the nightside of Earth.
