The Superman, invented by astrologer Richard Nolle in 1979, designates either a New Moon or a Full Moon that occurs within 90% of the perigee, the point closest to Earth in its orbit. With the moon in the perigee for three months, yesterday’s super month was the last appearance in 2020. In other words, when the Full Moon or New Moon appears as the Moon approaches Earth, it is called the Supermun.

The shallow or full moon was rewritten to celebrate Vesak or Buddha Poernima. This day marks the birth, enlightenment and death of Gautama Buddha.

The next super month is the 27th. April 2021, followed by another big month on April 26. May 2021. Supermuns can be observed in both the northern and southern hemispheres.
