What is a ‘Super blue blood moon?’
“A “supermoon” occurs when a full moon falls at the same time as its perigee, which is the closest point of the moon’s orbit with the Earth. This makes the moon larger and brighter by 14%, according to NASA. The first supermoon of 2018 took place on New Year’s Day and was previously described by NASA as the “biggest and brightest” one expected for the entire year. As the popular idiom suggests, blue moons are rare and refer to when there is a second full moon in one calendar month.”
