What is a "supermoon," you ask? For those of you who skipped 5th grade science class one too many times, don't fret: A "supermoon" is simply a full moon that occurs when the Earth's moon is at its closest to our planet. According to Slate, because our moon orbits on an ellipsis, this year's supermoon is technically the closet (re: biggest, brightest!) supermoon we've had the pleasure of seeing in decades!
