What Is A Supermoon?
A supermoon is a full moon or new moon that almost perfectly aligns with perigee, the point in the Moon’s elliptical orbit where it is closest to the Earth. As a result, the apparent size of the lunar disk as seen from Earth is slightly greater than usual.
Technically speaking, a full Moon near perigee is known as a perigee syzygy.
