There are numerous supermoons every year, but this April marks the largest supermoon set to occur in 2020.
In the early hours of April 8 the full moon was in its closest orbit to earth.
If a Full Moon happens to coincide within 90 percent of the lunar perigee, we witness a lovely Supermoon.
That night is when the moon will be at its perigee - a term for the point in the moon's orbit where it gets the closest it can to Earth, making it appear bigger and brighter in the sky - but the moon will still appear large for days before and after.
The full moon of April is often called the Pink Moon, and tonight's Pink Moon will be the closest the Moon will be to Earth during a full moon all year.
The full moon this month is also nicknamed the pink moon.
In March, the worm supermoon was obscured by clouds, but it looks like the April supermoon should be visible all evening.
April's full moon is known as the "pink moon," and despite some photographer's creative interpretations to the contrary, its color is not actually pink.
"The only time that we get unusual colours for the moon is if say, we're looking at it through smoky or dusty skies like we had last summer ... or in a lunar eclipse".
"Whether your hunkered down in your home in central England, or you're hunkered down in your home in suburban Washington DC, or in south-east Asia, you'll be able to see ultimately the same moon".
The pink part of its name is derived from the Phlox subulata flowers that bloom in April in the U.S. and Canada, so we're sorry to say the moon will not, in fact, be pink.
