A supermoon is a full moon or a new moon that approximately coincides with the closest distance that the Moon reaches to Earth in its elliptic orbit. The result is the Moon looking larger than normal.

The technical name is the perigee syzygy of the Earth–Moon–Sun system. Syzygy is the straight-line configuration of three or more celestial bodies in a gravitational system.

The Wolf Moon is the name given the January Full Moon by the Farmer’s Almanac.
