A
Super-moon
B
Blue-moon
C
Harvest-moon
D
Blood-moon
Question 98 Explanation: 

"The supermoon is a made-up term," said James Lattis, an astronomer at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. "It's not an astronomical term, there's no technical definition of it." Supermoon was actually coined by an astrologer in the 1970s, not by a scientist. The term has come to loosely mean a full moon that is at perigee, or when the moon is at its closest position to Earth along its orbit.
