Supermoon: The moon become closer to the Earth.

After playing football, I took a rest with my friend and we saw the moon bigger than last week. It was a super moon. I already knew about it in the internet. Super moon was 14 percent larger and 30 percent brighter than usual moon. No wonder why it look bigger and brighter as it also look amazing and spectacular.

The moon also become closer to the Earth about 30,000 meter and this term called 'perigee'. The moon was the closest to the Earth and when full moon coincidences with perigee, it called super moon. 

Moon illusion will only occur when the full moon rising behind distant objects (building or tree) on the horizon and it can seem huge.
