On this first day of 2018, at 5 p.m. EST (2200 GMT), the January full moon will arrive at perigee, its closest point to Earth in an orbit. Our lunar companion reaches an extreme perigee distance of 221,559 miles (356,565 kilometers). When these events coincide (a full moon at perigee), some people refer to the event as a “supermoon.”
The Don himself was so impressed by the event that he described it,
Supermoon is another reason smart voters will vote for me in 2020. Look at the supermoon: It’s me. My face… so much more than Crooked Hillary’s.
