Buck supermoon dazzles Greece but hidden by clouds in Australia


The first supermoon of the year dazzled Greece on Monday night, with photos now emerging of the moon shining brightly over ancient monuments such as the Temple of Poseidon at Cape Sounion.

Unfortunately, cloudy skies and rain over a lot of Australia made it more difficult to get the perfect shot.

This month’s supermoon is called a buck supermoon because it’s around the time when male deer in the northern hemisphere grow new antlers (and male deer are called bucks).

The supermoon appears 5.8 per cent bigger and 12.8 per cent brighter than an ordinary full moon.
