Saturday night’s moon appeared about fifteen percent incomparable and thirty percent brighter than alternative full moons this year, according to a National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).
The Super Moon (a word coined by astrologer Richard Nolle in 1979) seemed vast since a impulse of perigee—when a moon is closest to a Earth in a monthly rotation—coincided with a coming of a ideally full moon, according to a Smithsonian.
On Saturday during 11:34 p.m. ET, a moon reached full moon status—when a earth, moon and object have been all in alignment. One notation later, during 11:35 p.m., “perigee” occurred.
The moon was 221,802 miles divided from Earth Saturday night; (the normal stretch is 238,855 according to NASA.) That’s 17,053 miles closer.
