Lunar Phases and SuperMoons
To view the Lunar Phases
open your base chart, and select the Lists/Lunar

- Apparent Diameter - visible diameter of the Moon. Any phase with
diameter bigger than or equal to 0.55 can be considered a SuperMoon.
- Date - date when the phase occurs
- Time - the exact local time when the phase occurs

"Super-SuperMoon" - the biggest Moon in the series.

sorting will be done in the reverse order (from larger to smaller
