Of the possible 12 or 13 full or new moons each year, usually three or four may be classified as supermoons, as commonly defined.
The most recent full supermoon occurred on March 21, , and the next one will be on February 9, The oscillating nature of the distance to the full or new moon is due to the difference between the synodic and anomalistic months. Occasionally, a supermoon coincides with a total lunar eclipse.
The most recent occurrence of this was in January , and the next will be in May This is likely due to observations shortly after sunset when the moon is near the horizon and the moon illusion is at its most apparent. This is due to the inverse square law of light which changes the amount of light received on earth in inverse proportion to the distance from the moon.
Claims that supermoons can cause natural disasters, and the claim of Nolle that supermoons cause "geophysical stress", have been refuted by scientists. Scientists have confirmed that the combined effect of the Sun and Moon on the Earth's oceans, the tide ,  is greatest when the Moon is either new or full. However, even at its most powerful, this force is still relatively weak,  causing tidal differences of inches at most. Total lunar eclipses which fall on supermoon and micromoon days are relatively rare. In the 21st century, there are 87 total lunar eclipses, of which 28 are supermoons and 6 are micromoons.
Almost all total lunar eclipses in Lunar Saros are micromoon eclipses. Media related to Supermoon at Wikimedia Commons.
