On the 14th November, Hong Kong will have a chance to gaze at a full moon as the largest ‘super moon’ to appear over the city since 1948. The observatory forecasts good weather for the moon chasing to take place. The ‘super moon’ forms as the moon reaches its peak, at its closest distance to the earth, making it’s diameter to appear larger than usual, some say by 7%.
