‘The moon will be bigger this weekend’ expostulated our friend Janey in her characteristically enthusiastic way over dinner. Taking far too much after my father than I care to admit, I let slip the immortal words that on his lips drove me mad as a child: ‘I question that’.

A supermoon was nigh; that occurrence when a full moon coincides with the stage of its elliptical orbit when it is nearest to Earth.
