Supermoon encounters with Earth

Supermoon comes close to earth, India to miss lunar eclipse

A so-called supermoon is seen at the finish of a lunar eclipse behind an Orthodox church in Turets, Belarus, 110 kilometers (69 miles) west of capital Minsk, Monday, Sept. 28, 2015. Stargazers were being treated to a rare astronomical phenomenon when a total lunar eclipse combined with a so-called supermoon, the name given when the full or new moon comes closest to the Earth making it appear bigger. It was the first time the events have made a twin appearance since 1982, and they won't again until 2033.
