Biggest full moon of 2019 yet to come

From Morning Report, 8:57 am on 22 January 2019

Last night's full moon was bigger and brighter than usual - dubbed a supermoon, as it makes a closer than usual  approach to earth. For those on the other side of the world, the supermoon coincided with a total lunar eclipse, giving the moon a reddish colour and the name 'blood moon'.
