Super moon sightings in Galle

2 January 2018 - 189   - 0

Stargazers were in for a treat on Sunday as they caught a glimpse of the so-called “super moon” when the Moon appeared bigger and brighter in the sky as it moved closer to Earth.

The moon appeared 30% brighter and 14% bigger, differences that might be lost on the human eye when it’s hanging high in the sky.

Captured here are images of the moon as captured by our correspondent in Galle.
