Stargazers across the UK tonight will be treated to a rare supermoon tonight. The Harvest Moon will be the last supermoon to appear in the sky in 2023.

It comes after a handful of supermoons close together on July 3, August 3, and August 30. For a moon to be classed as a supermoon, it must be full at or near the time when the moon is at its nearest point to Earth, known as the perigee.

While the perigee landed on September 27, the supermoon will be at its fullest tonight, Birmingham Live reports.
