When a Moon reaches perigee, it may appear bigger and brighter at night than unusual.
Although astronomers prefer the term Full Moon at perigee or perigee Moon, amateur astronomers refer to the phenomenon as a Supermoon.
The opposite of a Supermoon, a Micromoon, occurs when a Full Moon is at apogee or its highest orbit.
A Supermoon will grace the skies on the weekend of February 8 to February 9.

How to watch the Supermoon live online
If you would rather stay indoors on Sunday morning, you will have a chance to catch an online broadcast of the Supermoon.
Dr Gianluca Masi, head of the Virtual Telescope Project in Italy, told Express.co.uk his telescope will follow the Supermoon over the picturesque skyline of Rome.
The astrophysicist said: “The Supermoon offers us a great opportunity to look up and discover the sky.”
The livestream will kick off at 4pm GMT on Saturday, February 8.
You can watch the stream on the Virtual Telescope’s website or here on Express.co.uk tomorrow.
Dr Masi said: “At night, the Full Moon is very bright, almost dazzling, compared to the darkness of the landscape.
“At its rise, the Moon appears behind the monuments and elements of the landscape, generating the feeling that its disk is larger than usual but this is just an optical illusion, due to the presence of these terrestrial elements on the line of sight, giving grounds for comparison.
“Seeing the Full Moon, especially when ‘super’ rising above Rome is a unique emotion: our satellite hangs above the legendary skyline of the Eternal City, with its glorious monuments, adding their magic to the experience.”
