Supermoon 2017: How to watch it this weekend
03 December 2017, 01:22 | Hattie Nash
The last time the Supermoon was observed was in November 2016
Supermoons of all sizes happen because the moon's orbit is not quite circular and the Earth isn't quite at the center of it.
The moon is nearly full Saturday night and will be full Sunday. "The difference in distance between these close and far points can be as much as about 30,000 miles". If you want to celebrate the year's most super supermoon as a holiday for moongazers, I don't see anything wrong with that. When two full moons occur in the same month, the second is sometimes called a blue moon or, in this case, a super blue moon. Before you dig out your telescope, however, here's what you need to know about the only supermoon of 2017 - and the best time to view it. This Sunday's supermoon will appear a little boring in comparison, only appearing seven percent larger and 16 percent brighter.
According toSpace.com, supermoons occurs when a point in a full moon's orbit is closest to Earth. 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.
"It is said that the moon appears larger because we compare it with terrestrial objects such as trees or buildings".
This weekend, sky-watchers can look forward to a phenomenon that hasn't yet graced the skies this year: a supermoon.
This optical illusion also occurs when watching the supermoon immediately after sunset (or before sunrise).
Just to be clear, the supermoon is only the moon-there will be no eclipse and no colors.
While the supermoon can come out looking larger in photos (thanks to long lenses and editing) than it does when looking at it in person, Nichols says it is an incredible opportunity to get people interested in science and astronomy.
