Tom talks about the Supermoon on BBC Breakfast

Tom Kerss from the Royal Observatory in Greenwich was in great demand for interviews about the recent Supermoon, where the Moon is closest to the earth and appears huge.  Appearing on BBC TV Breakfast he was interviewed by Dan Walker and Louise  Minchin to explain the phenomenon that causes the moon to look so much larger and brighter than usual.  

After speaking live in a down- the- line interview from the balcony of BBC Broadcasting House in London to the BBC in Salford, he was congratulated by the presenters on his depth of knowledge and expertise.  Tom has been media trained by TV News London, along with colleagues from the Royal Museums Greenwich, and he also did a talk about the Supermoon for BBC World which is on the BBC website Science & Environment section.
