"The moon's orbit is not a circle, it's sort of an egg shape so sometimes it's further away and sometimes it's close to us", Head of Astronomy at the Cranbrook Institute of Science in Bloomfield Hills Michael Narlock told WWJ Newsradio 950's Jason Scott.

National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) officials had said that supermoon was seen 70 years ago however, the force of attraction was the strongest resulting in high tides than usual.

On Saturday, the distance between the earth and moon was 3,57,492 km. The result is that the full "super" moon appears slightly larger and slightly brighter to us in the sky. A full moon at perigee will look up to 14 percent bigger and 30 percent brighter than a full moon at apogee.
