What is a supermoon?
Supermoons are a combination of a lunar perigee (when the moon is closest to the earth) and a full moon.
It will also take on an orange hue.
How can I see the supermoon?
The moon is due to rise in the east at 10pm on Tuesday.
It is then due to set in the west at 4am the following morning.
