The giant "Night Moon" shines the sky of the world ... 30% brighter.
The giant moon appears when the full moon almost coincides with the perigee, which is a point in the moon’s orbit where it is closer to Earth. This means that the giant moon can appear 14% larger and 30% brighter than usual when viewed from the Earth.
