The devastating earthquake of 8.9-magnitude that hit Japan, could be caused by the supermoon believe some people. The supermoon phenomenon is expected to occur on 19th March when the moon would be at its closet to the Earth in the past 18years.

However, some senior meteorologists and astronomers said that there is no connection between the earthquake and the moon's position since the full moon day is still 8-days away and the gravitational pull of the satellite is not so strong enough to cause major disasters.
