This year’s Chaitra Pournima is the Super Moon Pournima and will be the first Super Moon of the year.  At this time, the moon is 10 percent bigger and 30 percent is on the 27th day of the full moon, but the moon will be almost complete for 3 days from 26th to 28th.  The distance between the moon and the earth will be 358,615 km.  The distance between the Moon and the Earth increases and decreases every year during the Super Moon.
       On January 26, 1848, the moon was closest to the earth.  In November 2016, it came very close to Earth.  The Super Moons on April 22 and May 26 will also be very short distances. The minimum distance between the Moon and the Earth is 356,500 km and the longest distance is 4,06,700 km.  The shortest distance will be on May 26, 2021.
