Amazing Videos of Supermoon

Thousands of sky gazers across the world enjoyed the Supermoon (also known as a perigee moon) on Saturday night, the breathtaking natural phenomenon.

The moon came its closest to Earth in 18 years and it appeared bigger and brighter than normal.

The reason is: moon’s orbit around the earth is elliptical, and so when the elliptical path passes closest to Earth, a full moon becomes wider and brighter than an average full (new) moon (last night it was 14 per cent wider and 30 per cent brighter).

Some astrologers have linked the Supermoon to the natural disaster in Japan, but according to Wikipedia: “no evidence has been found of any correlation with major earthquakes”.
