Superluna been so superior?

Australians were upset when the sky was overcast with clouds, from 5 to 6 May, as it did not allow them to enjoy superlunoy. Much they have lost?
Expected full moon was bigger and brighter than usual, because it coincides with the spacecraft perigee — the point at which the moon was as close to the Earth. However, many fans of the moon did not see a strong difference between the full moon and superlunoy. It was only 10-14% more than usual. In this long time astrologers and the media fueled the interest in Australian public forecasts brightest moon.
