“When a full moon makes its closest pass to Earth in its orbit it appears up to 14 percent bigger and 30 percent brighter, making it a supermoon,” NASA says.

In the U.S., we’ll get three chances to see the moon at its brightest and biggest, from around sunset Sunday to Monday’s predawn and sunset. On both days, the moon will rise around sunset. The moon’s elliptical and roughly 28-day orbit means that its distance from Earth when it’s completely full varies. While the full moon always looks large along a horizon, the effect should be even greater for the next few days.

What is Supermoon?

According to NASA, the moon’s orbit around Earth is slightly elliptical so sometimes it is closer and sometimes it is farther away. When the moon is full as it makes its closest pass to Earth it is known as a supermoon.
