How to watch the supermoon this weekend
According to The Old Farmer's Almanac, supermoons appear up to 14 percent larger, and up to 30 percent brighter, than regular full moons.
While some new moons reached perigee point this year and came even closer to Earth, they fell short of full supermoon status as they were not full moons. And considering the word describes the moon when it's closest to the Earth, causing it to appear bigger than normal proves the namesake is definitely deserved.
The distance between the moon and Earth constantly changes. The full moon that will creep over the eastern horizon Sunday evening will not only be the last full moon of the year, but it will also be a supermoon. Your eye probably can't detect a difference in size between the December 3 supermoon and any ordinary full moon, although experienced observers say they can detect a size difference.
Sky watchers patiently waiting for the moon to go big this year will finally be rewarded in a couple of days as the only supermoon of 2017 will finally appear on December 3.
Because the moon's orbit is elliptical instead of round, it has a point closest to the earth (perigee) and a point farthest from the Earth (apogee).
There is also a monthly lunar cycle where you can see varying amounts of the moon depending on it's position relative to Earth and the sun.
A supermoon can only occur at during a special time called perigee-syzygy.
If the skies are clear then there should be no difficulty spotting the supermoon.
