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

The full moon phase will be on December 3, at 9.16 pm, when the moon will be about 491 km (or 0.14%) farther than its closest point the next day.

At different stages in the moon's orbit around the earth it will be closer to us or further away. Due to this phenomenon from the ground you can see the larger size of the lunar disk than usual. If the moon is a full moon and also if it is at perigee, it will be bigger and brighter and if the full moon is at apogee, it will be smaller and less bright than usual. The weather forecast calls for partly cloudy skies on Sunday night, and you can check the National Weather Service's graphical forecast for a more specific prediction. Supermoons typically appear about 30 percent brighter than the usual moon. "As the moon goes round the Earth, its distance from the Earth keeps changing", he said. Supermoons are set to occur twice in January, on the 2nd and 31st. The moon's orbit around our planet is tilted so it usually falls above or below the shadow of the earth.
