There once. Close approaches now are with models.
The rain and clouds cleared for a bit letting me catch the total eclipse of the moon last night (Jan 20, 2019). (Although not before I got rained on! 😦 . But lucky me, the clouds only came back just after the eclipse finished. )
Two images taken January 30, 2018 of an essentially full moon: the super blue moon (super = when a full moon is at a closest approach to Earth; blue = second full moon in the same month).
The last image: a super blue blood moon 🙂
December 2017 supermoon rises over a cinema. Cine-moon flavored 😉 ?

Weather prevented me from seeing the most recent ‘supermoon‘. A clear morning two days later gave this consolation.
Full moon rising over the town clock tower. (The time shown is *not* correct 🙂 )
