A supermoon is a phenomenon that occurs whenever a full moon enters its nearest point to Earth on its orbit around us. It will appear about 14% larger than usual full moons, and about 30% brighter than a normal.
This will be the only supermoon this year, while the next one will happen as soon as on January 2, 2018. Last year we witnessed three supermoons.
