The Answer

Last update 2022.08.09

The moon is called the super moon when the moon is a full moon and coincides with its presence at the closest point to the earth in its elliptical orbit around it , which is called perigee, and is called the farthest point (apogee), and the full moon then is full Micromoon.


The size of the apparent giant moon is 12.5% - 14.1% larger than the small full moon, and larger than the average size of the full moon by about 5.9%-6.9%. Due to the Moon's proximity to Earth, the giant moon appears to be 30% brighter than a small full moon, and about 16% brighter than a medium full moon.
