Thanks Joy..here's some info From Space.com: The are doing a live broadcast this weekend.
October's full moon will also take place when the moon is at its closest point to Earth in its 27-day lunar orbit (this point is known as perigee). Some people define a full moon at perigee as a supermoon. The supermoon is not a scientific term, however, so there are varying definitions. The Slooh Community Observatory uses the term supermoon only once per year, to refer to the full moon that comes closest to Earth in its orbit, a Slooh representative told Space.com. (In addition, Slooh uses the term "mega moon" instead of supermoon.)
In collaboration with The Old Farmer's Almanac, Slooh will offer a live broadcast for this month’s full moon on Saturday (Oct. 15). You can also watch it live on Space.com, courtesy of Slooh. The broadcast will share facts and history about the full Hunter's Moon, as well as an interview with Slooh Astronomer Bob Berman, who will discuss the difference between a full moon and a supermoon.
The Miracle has happened in Pasni Pakistan yesterday. This is called as Hunters Moon.. Due to change of orbit the sun sets and moon rises at the same time with both being opposite to each other at a particular angle or degree moon reflects the sun so bright that it almost feels like another sun.

Here's another video. I hadn't finished watching it and really wish the channel had left a location of the filming and date.. doesn't seem like an outrageous request.
