Show your apogee from your perigee with this Official Educational Super Moon design!
How does the Super Moon work? Earth is not at the centre of the Moon’s orbit – so when the moon is closest, it looks the biggest. This is called perigee. When a perigee moon is also a full moon, it’s called a Super Moon! When the moon is furthest from the Earth, it’s called apogee. The difference in size is 14% – which sounds a lot, but in area isn’t that much.
