The super moon passed its peak on August 12, but it will still appear unusually large to most people.

That is because it remains close to complete illumination, according to moon trackers.

The satellite’s current phase is “waning gibbous”, the closest phase to a full moon.

People can see 96.9 percent of the moon’s surface, and as the supermoon was roughly 24 hours ago, it should retain some of its enhanced size.
