When the moon appears larger and much brighter compared to its normal size. It is therefore called the Supermoon, and researchers believe that the Moon’s size will increase by about 14 percent during this time compared to its normal size, and that its brightness will be 30 percent higher than before. In this case, the distance between the Moon and the Earth decreases.

At the same time, when the Moon and the Earth are close to each other as they orbit the Sun, the distance between them is 3,56,500 km. Scientists call it Perigee. At this time, a supermoon will appear the day after the Moon and Earth are closest to each other.
