A moon of enormous porportions was in full view on Sunday as the satellite reached one of it's closets points to Earth during it's orbit. From Malta to London... the shining supermoon was quite the sight for on lookers in cloudless skies. One little girl in France described some scientific details on the phenomenon. (SOUNDBITE) (English) CHILD, EVE TESSIER, SAYING: "As you can see, it's really bright. It's a full moon, but really, really bright. There's only going to be four ... three, sorry, of these moons in the whole of 2014. There's only going to be three of these moons the whole year." The moon will actually reach it's closet point all decade during the full moon on November 14th 2016 when it will be a mere 220,000 miles away from Earth.
