Last night (03/12/2017) the moon was the closest to earth than it will be until November 24th 2034. Known as a supermoon the Moon appears larger and brighter in the sky. Itw was a little cloudy last night but the moon was without doubt shining through the cloud. The distance between the Moon and Earth varies throughout the month and the year. On average the distance is about 382,900 kilometers (238,000 miles). This is because the Moon’s orbit around Earth is not a perfect circle, but elliptical, with one side closer to Earth than the other. A Super Full Moon will look about 7% bigger than an average Full Moon. When compared to a Micromoon, it looks about 12% to 14% larger. Lanzarorote and the Canary islands are one of the best places to take advantage of these phenomenons due to the clear skies.
