Supermoon creates spectacular views around the world

The next two supermoons will take place on Jan.1 and Jan. 31.

The term supermoon was coined by astrologer Richard Nolle in 1979, which he defined as "a new or full moon which occurs with the moon at or near (within 90 percent of) its closest approach to Earth in a given orbit (Perigee). In short, Earth, moon and sun are all in a line, with moon in its nearest approach to Earth."

The moon can appear up to 14 percent larger and 30 percent brighter than usual during the phenomenon.
