How to see tonight's pink supermoon, the largest full moon of 2020

This just so happens to be the Super Pink Moon, also known as the Paschal Full Moon, and in addition to being handsome, it'll also be quite the game-changer.

April 7th's supermoon will be the second and last supermoon of 2020.

The waxing moon sets in the morning next to the pink neon angels, modeled on the little angels on Raphael's Sistine Madonna, on the Dresden Zwinger in Dresden, Germany, Tuesday.

A supermoon is a new or full moon closely coinciding with perigee, the moon's closest point to Earth in its monthly orbit.

They will be 12.1m at 8.15am in Jersey and 10.2m at 7.23am in Guernsey tomorrow (Thursday 9th 2020).

As EarthSky explains, the full moon will be seen at a distance of 221,851 miles from Earth's surface. Beguilingly, yesterday, April 7, the moon came closest to the Earth for the entire year when it reached the perigee. In short, a supermoon is visible when the Moon is closest to the earth. Accordingly, it will technically appear the biggest and brightest of the moons - but not so much that it's noticeable.

It's a special occasion, but the change in size and brightness isn't dramatic enough for some people to even notice the difference.
