Three Super Moons to Be Observed between December and January

Supermoon Alert! Sunday's Full Moon Will Be 2017's Only Supermoon

The result is that the full "super" moon appears slightly larger and slightly brighter to us in the sky. Since it is the second full moon of the month, it will also be a "blue moon", which only happens every two and a half years on average.

A supermoon occurs when a full moon coincides with the point in orbit in which the moon is closest to Earth.

According to Michael Nicholas, Public Observer Director of Chicago's Adler Planetarium, the moon will cope a distance of 222,135km from the ground today. When a full moon is closer to our planet, the tide levels are often higher.

Monday's supermoon will appear about 14 per cent bigger than if it were at its farthest away point in its orbit and will shine up to 30 per cent brighter. The best time to see it will be anytime after moonrise, which will occur around 5 p.m. local time in the US depending on your time zone. But that doesn't mean this weekend's supermoon won't be lovely - expect a full moon at least 7% bigger and 16% brighter than usual.

But for those who can't wake up that early, the moon will still look bigger - and brighter - throughout the night.

December's supermoon can best be seen Saturday night.

The finest time span to observe the supermoon is right after the moonrise and just before the sunrise, but the moon will stun throughout its voyage across the sky.

"The supermoons are a great opportunity for people to start looking at the moon", said Noah Petro, a research scientist from NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center.

Rare sighting of the first and last supermoon of the year will be observed today all over the world including Pakistan. But the supermoon that took place exactly a month before that was much more notable - it was the closest supermoon to Earth since January 1948. That'll be a super moon, even by Neil deGrasse Tyson's standards.
