2017's one and only supermoon soars over Washington

The Full Moon on Sunday night marked the first and only supermoon of 2017

The most recent supermoon was around a year ago on November 14th, 2016.

The moon gained the title supermoon because it was not only full, but also passing Earth at about its closest point in its orbit. That means it sometimes swings closer to the Earth than usual - and if that happens to coincide with a full moon, it can produce a huge, bright, white, glowing show.

The next supermoon will occur on Jan 1, 2018, and it will be much like December's though just a bit dimmer.

NASA has called Sunday night's appearance the first in a "supermoon trilogy," that will take place over the next two months. Since the moon's orbit is elliptical, one side (apogee) is about 30,000 miles (50,000 km) farther from Earth than the other (perigee).

In the morning light, the 2017 supermoon drifted over the horizon, disappearing from view until next year.
