On the 16th October there will not only be a full Moon but also, a Supermoon. This means that not only will we be able to see the whole face of the Moon (weather permitting of course). The two images above show the Moon photographed against the backdrop of the Earth from two very different perspectives; one from the Earth’s surface and one from the edge of space – pretty amazing stuff.
