The moon follows an elliptical orbit around the blue planet, and only comes this close once a moon-year. The natural satellite takes just over 400 days to complete a full circuit meaning that there should be a Supermoon once every 400 days or so.  The massive figure of the moon in the sky is not, however, caused by its closeness to
