When can you see the last supermoon of 2017?

The second supermoon in January will also be a Blue Supermoon as it is the second full moon to appear in a calendar month.

The term was coined by an astronomer in 1979, and we've been hearing about it ever since. The moon is distinguished by the cold moon and is one of only three full moons this year that comes close enough to the Earth to obtain full supermoon status.

In case you aren't able to view the supermoon on December 3, know that you wouldn't have to wait for long to watch the next supermoon: in 2018, the first two full moons will also be supermoons! When an average apogee occurs, the moon is furthest from the earth at a distance stretching to roughly 252,000 miles. The variations in apparent size and illumination amount to few percent but they can improve the already incredible sight of the full moon, making a supermoon worth looking up for.

The moon's orbit around the Earth is not a ideal circle, meaning the distance between the two bodies grows and shrinks as the lunar planet plods eternal laps around us. The super-full moon will be at 17:47 GMT on Sunday December 3rd, while the moon's perihelion (the closest to the Earth) will happen on Monday morning at 10:42 GMT.

At that moment, the moon will not be visible over most of North America. The shortest and most distant from the Earth (406.268 km) full moon of 2017 had occurred on June 9, near its peak. The celestial event will be visible for anyone who is located somewhere without dense cloud cover, marking the final notable moon appearance of the year. In this position, the moon looks larger and brighter than when it rises up in the sky, because when it is low, one can compare it with elements of the landscape (hills, buildings, etc.). According to NASA, the moon will be at its nearest distance to Earth - a measly 222,443 miles during this time.
