Super Full Moon

is not Required
A Supermoon happens when a Full Moon or New Moon coincides with the Moon's closest approach to Earth; also called perigee.
Because it's so close to Earth, a Super Full Moon looks about 7% bigger than an average Full Moon. When compared to a Micromoon, it looks about 12% to 14% larger.
A Super Full Moon also looks about 30% brighter than a Micro Full Moon and about 16% brighter than an average Full Moon.
Data from US Naval Observatory MICA software, corrected for Los Angeles' local time zone and daylight time when in effect.
