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

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

While it has been a year since a visible supermoon last lit up the sky, everyone in the world has a chance to marvel at this upcoming full moon. The moon will not come this close to the earth again until 2034. Due to this phenomenon from the ground you can see the larger size of the lunar disk than usual.

The moon will be visible to see on Sunday after 5 p.m. when it begins to rise, however, it won't officially be a Supermoon until it is at its closest point to Earth, which will be at approximately 4 a.m. on Monday. With the total eclipse, it'll be a royal spectacle indeed: "a 'super blue blood" Moon.

Earlier in November a year ago, PMD announced sighting of a full moon in the country that was 14% bigger and 30% brighter than the normal full moon because of its closest distance from the earth. "As the moon goes round the Earth, its distance from the Earth keeps changing", he said.

The Dec. 3. supermoon will become completely full at 7:47 a.m. PST, according to Space.com. Its distance from Earth would be 3,57,983 km.

The full moon on Sunday night will be a supermoon and will be bigger and brighter than usual.

Just to be clear, the supermoon is only the moon-there will be no eclipse and no colors.

If you don't think you'll want to leave the comfort of your own home to view the celestial event, there will be two livestreams of the supermoon.

This optical illusion also occurs when watching the supermoon immediately after sunset (or before sunrise).

For those using DSLR cameras, Ingalls recommends using another subject in the image, like a person, pet or landmark to compare to the size of the moon. "Supermoons aren't rare, but they're not an everyday occurrence either. It's a fun way to get involved in science".
