The scientific name for a Supermoon is Perigee Full Moon. A Supermoon occurs when the full moon is at the closest point of its orbit to the Earth. The Moon will look much closer and brighter.
The Supermoon is normally best viewed as it rises. The best time to view it is when it is just rising, as it will appear to look much larger.
