Look for December's Supermoon this Weekend!

The liberal definition would be a full or new moon that's at or near its closest approach to Earth in its orbit. It makes the moon appear up to 14 percent lighter and 30 percent brighter.

Superlow in the night sky will be visible soon - in the night from 3 to 4 December. But that doesn't mean this weekend's supermoon won't be handsome - expect a full moon at least 7% bigger and 16% brighter than usual.

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. At its perigee, the moon will be just 222,135 miles from Earth, almost 16,000 miles closer than it normally is throughout the year, according to NASA. You'll have another chance to see a supermoon on January 1, which marks the brightest full moon of 2018.

The last supermoon occurred approximately a year ago on December 14. A Blue Moon can be a supermoon, just like any other full moon.

The day after the moon will be at its closest to earth in the month.

If you're unable to see the supermoon, you won't have to wait long for another opportunity.

While you likely won't be blown away if you look for the supermoon with your naked eye, National Geographic says you may see enhanced effects using cameras with telephoto lenses, binoculars or telescopes. And get ready for a total lunar eclipse on January 31.
