I was reading with interest about Super Moon 2016 for the past few days in the messages posted in WhatsApp and Face book Group. I herewith share the details about the concept of Super Moon,when,where and how to see it etc., and also share the photographs of Super Moon taken by me from my balcony on 11th floor of my Apartment building in Chennai.
What is a supermoon?
A supermoon is the coincidence of a full moon or a new moon with the closest approach the Moon makes to the Earth on its elliptical orbit, resulting in the largest apparent size of the lunar disk as seen from Earth. The technical name is the perigee-syzygy of the Earth–Moon–Sun system
The opposite phenomenon, an apogee-syzygy, has been called a micromoon
