THE SKIES were illuminated by the first supermoon of 2018 last night – known as the ‘wolf moon’.

A supermoon is a full moon that coincides with the shortest distance between the moon and earth during its orbit.

The supermoon in each lunar cycle is given a name. February’s is known as the ‘snow moon’ or ‘hunger moon’.
