A supermoon is a full moon that falls near or on perigee, the point in the moon's orbit where it is closest to the Earth.

The nearby perigee Full Moons appear about 14 per cent bigger and 30 per cent brighter than Full Moons that occur near the apogee in the Moon's orbit.

The first supermoon of the year was visible on January 12 and the second was on November 3.

An interesting pattern appears when you map out the motion of the moon relative to the Earth (apogee/perigee) and relative to the Sun (lunation or phases like full, new, etc.). The Dec. 3 full moon is the first of three consecutive supermoons.

We'll also see two blue moons in 2018.

Astrophysicists say the Supermoon often "sounds far more impressive than it actually is."

Past year the moon made its closest approach to the Earth since 1948, and it won't be this close again until November 25, 2034. Zimmer stood miles away on the other side of Tampa Bay in St. Petersburg, Florida, to capture this impressive view of the supermoon.
