It is bigger Alexandra

Next month we will have a supermoon and a total eclipse as well

https://earthsky.org/?p=172164
The next supermoon comes with the January 21 full moon, which is, moreover, to stage a total lunar eclipse. This supermoon on January 21 ushers in the first in a series of three full supermoons falling on January 21, February 19 and March 21, 2019. Of these, the February 19th full moon showcases the closest and largest full supermoon of 2019.

Full moon distance (2019 Jan 21): 222,274 miles or 357,715 km
Full moon distance (2019 Feb 19): 221,734 miles or 356,846 km
Full moon distance (2019 Mar 21): 224,173 miles or 360,772 km
