A multiple exposure image shows the ‘supermoon’ near the Buddha statue in Yangon Myanmar on 03 December 2017
The moon appears to be about 14% larger and about 7 % brighter. Because the orbit of the Monday is elliptical, one side known as apogee is about 50,000 km away from the Earth than the other called perigee.

At some points it is about 5 per cent closer to Earth than average, known as perigee, and at others it is 5 per cent further away, known as apogee. It indicated a new moon or full moon that came within 362,146 kilometers of the planet, as measured from the centers of the moon and Earth.
When a Full Moon reaches its closest point to Earth on its orbit, it is called Supermoon. The next supermoon will appear next month, not once but twice.
The moon rises in its waxing gibbous stage behind a statue atop the Erie County Court Building, Saturday, Dec. 2, 2017, in Buffalo, N.Y. The Dec. 3 full moon will be the first of three consecutive supermoons. This is because the previous two were around the time of a new moon, which isn't visible in the sky.
The term "supermoon" was coined by astrologer Richard Noelle more than 30 years ago.
When the supermoon is viewed low on the horizon, it appears huge. Icerink opened for skating at full moon.
The next supermoon full moons will be on January 1st and January 31st.
