The Moon's distance varies each month between approximately 357,000 kilometers and 406,000 km due to its elliptical orbit around the Earth. A Supermoon is the coincidence of a full moon or a new moon with the closest approach the Moon makes to the Earth on its elliptical orbit, resulting in the largest apparent size of the moon's disk as seen from Earth. This high resolution Lunar portrait represents more than 3 Terabytes of processed data. Learn more about the HiMARC technology behind this photograph in the research section.
