Supermoon 2020: How many Supermoons are there this year? 1

“This phenomenon, technically referred to as a perigee-syzygy, is commonly known as a Supermoon.

“Using the definition above and applying it to the Moon’s mean apogee and perigee distances results in a mean limiting distance of 367,607km for a Supermoon.”

Other, however, are stricter with the definition and only consider the Full Moons in March and April to be super.

Astrologer Richard Noelle, who coined the Supermoon term, bases his approximation of the loses lunar perigee and apogees – highest orbits – in a given year.

The Full Moons in March and April will be closer to Earth than the ones in February and May.
