The moon's distance from Earth ranges from 222,000 and 252,000 miles because its orbit is elliptical.
There are two supermoons happening in the month of January. Because the orbit of the Monday is elliptical, one side known as apogee is about 50,000 km away from the Earth than the other called perigee.
That night will also feature a lunar eclipse, when the moon, earth and sun all line up.
During a supermoon, technically called a 'perigee syzygy, ' the moon can appear up to 30% brighter than usual.
The time between perigees (an anomalistic month, about 27.555 days) does not align very well with the time between full moons (a synodic month, about 29.531 days).
