Super moon or Supermoon, is the coincidence of a full moon or a new moon with the closest approach the Moon makes to the Earthon its elliptical orbit, resulting in the largest apparent size of the lunar disk as seen from Earth.
The association of the Moon with both oceanic and crustal tides has led to claims that the supermoon phenomenon may be associated with increased risk of events such as earthquakes and volcanic eruptions, but the evidence of such a link is widely held to be unconvincing.
The opposite phenomenon, an apogee-syzygy, has been called a micromoon, though this term is not as widespread as supermoon.
Occasionally, a supermoon coincides with a total lunar eclipse. The most recent occurrence of this was on September 27–28, 2015, while the next time will be in 2033.
