The phenomenon of supermoon occurs when the full moon is at the closest distance to the Earth in its orbit. Such a moon is unusually brighter and closer than at regular days. This term has been used for quite a long time but gained popularity in recent years, when three supermoons occurred in a row. It happens quite a while and in the year 2019, two supermoons have already occurred on Jan 20-21 and Feb 19, with another one to appear on March 21.
