Supermoons in 2018

Astrologer Richard Nolle, who came up with the term, defines a supermoon as ". . . a new or full moon which occurs with the moon at or near (within 90% of) its closest approach to Earth." The classical terminology is "perigee". There are 4 - 6 supermoons on average in a year and "are noteworthy for their close association with extreme tidal forces working in what astrologers of old used to call the sublunary world: the atmosphere, crust and oceans of our home planet - including ourselves, of course. From extreme coastal tides to severe storms to powerful earthquakes and volcanic eruptions, the entire natural world surges and spasms under the sway of the SuperMoon alignment - within three days either way of the exact syzygy, as a general rule." Richard Nolle  

In the year 2018, any full moon or new moon coming closer than 361,554.9 km of Earth counts as a supermoon.
