PAGASA added that the supermoon can appear up to 14 percent larger and 30 percent brighter than usual.

However, 2018 will delight skywatchers with two supermoons, one on January 2nd and another just a few weeks later on January 31st.

The moon's distance from Earth ranges from 222,000 and 252,000 miles because its orbit is elliptical.
