2017's Only Supermoon Is Happening This Weekend. Here's How to See it

The effect makes the celestial body appear larger and brighter. The word "supermoon" was coined by Richard Nolle, an astrologer, in 1979. The moon is distinguished by the cold moon and is one of only three full moons this year that comes close enough to the Earth to obtain full supermoon status.

On the night of December 3, the sky-watchers across the globe will witness the first and last observable supermoon of 2017. When an average apogee occurs, the moon is furthest from the earth at a distance stretching to roughly 252,000 miles. "So it translates to the closest separation between the moon and Earth when the Earth, moon and sun are aligned", Besla told NPR.

The December full moon, even when its not a supermoon, is known as the cold moon.

The moon will be full at 10:47 am Sunday morning and will reach it's closest point to earth on Monday at 3:34 am. Astronomers say the moon will appear as much as 14 percent bigger and 30 percent brighter to many viewers around the world. The shortest and most distant from the Earth (406.268 km) full moon of 2017 had occurred on June 9, near its peak.

The super-full moons in the northern hemisphere during the winter months seem larger than the rest of the year, because at this time of year the Earth is closer to the Sun.

But according to earthsky.org, January will have two full supermoons, on the 2nd and the 31st.

The supermoon will be visible in night skies around the planet, but the best time to see it will be just after sunset. The moon is approximately 2, 38, 000 miles away from the earth, but on Monday, it will be 2, 22, 135 miles.
