    There are actually 12-13 lunar perigee’s per year (one or two per month). Here are the dates on which the moon is closest both to the Earth and to being full, followed by the distance (dates where the moon is closer, but not necessarily full have consequently been excluded). For purposes of comparison, the March 19th perigee places the moon at a distance to us of 356577 km.

    May 6, 2012 – 356953 km
    June 23, 2013 – 356989 km
    August 10, 2014 – 356896 km
    September 28, 2015 – 356876 km
    November 14, 2016 –  356511 km – closer than the upcoming perigee

    Technically, the supermoon is called a perigee-syzgy. Perigee is the point when the moon is the closest to earth. Syzgy is the nearly straight-line configuration or alignment of three celestial bodies, such as the Sun, the Earth, and the Moon.
