2 Supermoons in one month (January 1st and 31st) + some facts

"A supermoon happens when the full moon coincides with the moon's closest approach to Earth in its orbit. Supermoons make the moon appear a little brighter and closer than normal, although the difference is hard to spot with the naked eye."

Click here for a  nice site to explain what a supermoon really is  (from Space.com).
