- Story Text: The supermoon battled with dark clouds over the Croatian capital on Monday (November 14) but won in the end and rose large and bright over Zagreb's Cathedral.
The view of the supermoon seemed set to be ruined by thick dark clouds above the city but suddenly it appeared through the skies and shone brightly between the cathedral's spires and over the city.
The moon appeared as bells rang from the evening church services in the cathedral and from neighbouring churches.
The term "supermoon" is used as the full moon appears up to 14 percent bigger and 30 percent brighter than usual as it travels closer to Earth more than at any time since 1948. The moon will pass within 216,486 miles (348,400 km.) of Earth's surface, about 22,000 miles (35,400 km.) closer than average.
