Prime viewing time will be at around 9:52pm, according to the Hong Kong Observatory.

If the skies are clear, the moon may appear 14 per cent bigger and 30 per cent brighter than regular full moons.

NASA scientists say that it will be the biggest supermoon since 1948 and that we will not see another of its size until 2034.
