Based on BBC news article "Supermoon lights up sky around the world"
On the night November fourteen
By orbit's cycles, moon looms near
An astral stellar lunar scene
Since '48 the largest sphere
Around the world the drifting night
Heaven's show of nature's wonder
Peoples of the world unite
Common sky we all live under
From New Zealand to New Delhi
Cairo, London, Bondi beach
Leave the tablet and the telly
Go outside and stretch to reach
On your own or with some friends
Join the upward looking crowds
Pause and ponder - does space end?
Unless you're cursed with thick grey clouds
