« The last supermoon of the year, also known as the Harvest Moon, brightened up the skies of Tehranб on Friday.
September’s full moon is the closest full moon to the autumn equinox. This supermoon is the fourth in a series of supermoons in a row.
The supermoon appear larger and brighter in the night sky compared to a regular full moon. This effect is due to the moon being at its closest point to Earth in its orbit, known as perigee, which makes it appear about 14 percent larger and up to 30 percent brighter than a typical full moon. »
