As reported by EarthSky, the angular diameter of the supermoon will be about 7% larger than the average size of a full moon, and around 14% bigger than the angular diameter of a micro-moon or mini-moon. It also added that one may notice that the full moon of this year will be particularly brighter. The supermoon can be up to 14 per cent bigger to 30 per cent brighter than an average full moon, meaning that the pink super moon will be the biggest and the brightest of this year. However, this won't be the first super moon of 2020. We had already witnessed one in February and one in March, last month.
