What is a supermoon? 1st supermoon of 2021 illuminates skies

The pink supermoon, which marked the first supermoon of 2021, was an impressive sight in the skies from New York to Sydney on Monday, but is it actually pink?

A supermoon appears about 14 per cent bigger and 30 per cent brighter than a typical full moon, especially when it rises over the horizon.

Global’s Ross Hull explains what a supermoon is and why it looks the way it does.
