NIGHT-owls are in for a treat tonight as the sky will be lit up from the supermoon. 

On November 14, the moon will be closer to Earth than it has been this century - and for the first time in 68 years.

And you don't want to miss this one- another one like it won't occur again until 2034.

During the event, the moon will appear up to 14 per cent bigger and 30 per cent brighter than an average full moon.

This phenomenon is known as 'beaver moon', named by colonial Americans as a reminder to set beaver traps.

The November lunar cycle will orbit closer to the Earth than it has in decades, making the moon look enormous and luminous.

The moon's distance from Earth varies because it follows an elliptical orbit rather than a circular one.

Scientists have dismissed notions that the phenomenon could cause bizarre behaviour or natural disasters.

Its most significant impact is likely to be on the tide.
