It’s called a Supermoon.

The so-called “supermoon” happens when the moon turns full and it is at its closest approach to earth at 221,802 miles away.  The combination of the two effects results in a supermoon.

NASA says a supermoon appears up to 16 percent larger and 30 percent brighter than a usual full moon.   Unusually high and low tides are expected in the days surrounding the supermoon.
