It was a full moon and it looked bigger than usual because the moon is a little closer to Earth than usual.

Australia’s astronomer at large, Professor Fred Watson, says we were on the unlucky side of the planet last night.

“In the Western Hemisphere, mostly the Americas, they had a total eclipse of the moon,” he told Neil Mitchell.

“The thing that really grabs people … is often when you’ve got a full moon and you see it rising … it looks huge, it looks absolutely enormous,” Professor Watson said.
