Tonight, Monday 14th November 2016, the full moon will shine at its biggest and brightest since 1948.

This moon will still be large tomorrow, but tonight is the best night to glimpse this supermoon. Supermoons, or perigee-syzygy, only happen when our celestial neighbour is both full and also closest to the Earth during its orbit. This means that the full moon appears around 30% brighter and 14% bigger at this time.

This phenomenon has not occurred for almost 70 years, and will not likely happen again until 2034. What better way to enjoy this stunning natural spectacle than sitting outside, wrapped in a warm blanket, on one of our comfortable teak garden benches, sun loungers or daybeds?

Please get in touch if you would like to collect your fully assembled garden furniture from our showroom in Coulsdon, or if you have any other questions.
