Supermoons occur when the moon's closest approach to the Earth, known as perigee, coincides with a full moon. The perigee and the full moon occured within a minute of each other Saturday night and the moon seemed as much as 14 per cent bigger and 30 per cent brighter than other full moons this year, NASA said. In this image, the full moon rises behind a mosque as a kite flies in Amman.
