An unusually large and bright moon will adorn the night sky next Monday – the closest "supermoon" to Earth in 68 years and a chance for dramatic photos and spectacular surf.This happens when the moon is full at the same time as, or very near, perigee – its closest point to Earth on an elliptical, monthly orbit.The moon's position in the sky will mean its southern hemisphere, the brighter of the two, will be turned toward Earth.Once it is high in the sky, it would be hard to tell that the moon is larger.
