A super Moon is a moon occurs when a full moon or new moon coincides with the Moon’s closest approach to the Earth on its orbit.
moon is closest to Earth. It orbits our planet in an oval shape so sometimes it comes closer to us than at other times. To us Earth-lings, the moon appears 30 per cent brighter and 14 per cent bigger.
