Super Moon is the phenomenon in which earth satellite appears closest to Earth (perigee) and at the same time is in full moon. Full Moon observes the Earth is exactly between the Sun and the Moon.
Moon's orbit around Earth is elliptical, so the moon or approaching or moving away from us. Perigee is the closest point to Earth orbit of a celestial body and not always stands at the same distance from Earth. The opposite of perigee is the apogee - the farthest point in the orbit of a celestial body.
In November 2016 our natural satellite will officially going on perigee at 13:23 on November 14 bulgarian time, when approach only 350,508 kilometers of our planet. The moon will reach full phase two and half hours later at 15:52 pm.
Earth was not so close to the full moon since January 26, 1948, when our Moon was 48 kilometers closer to us. The full Moon will again be so close only on November 25, 2034, and the closest Earth and moon for this century will be on December 6, 2052 when we separated by 356 424 from one another.
According to calculations, November super moon will be 7 percent higher than normal and about 15 percent brighter. Of course, for the human eye that is unnoticeable difference.
