Supermoon 2017 will be Visible Sunday

A combination made on November 1

The best time to see the supermoon will be at 08:45 GMT (03:45 EST) on December 4, at which point the moon will be just 222,135 miles (357,492 kilometres) away from Earth.

Keen photographers captured stunning images of the large and bright moon hanging over cities worldwide.

Native Americans dubbed December's full moon the Full Cold Moon because it signals the beginning of winter when cold weather fastens its grip on much of the country until spring.

However during a supermoon event the full moon comes up to 90 per cent closer to perigee, thus filling up the skies. The only supermoon of 2017 - known as the Full Cold Moon - takes place December 3. At that point the moon will be 222,135 miles away from Earth - almost 16,000 miles closer than it normally is during the year, Space.com reports. Amateur astronomer, Nick Holmes, has calculated how big each planet would look in our sky if it replaced the moon. It's called a supermoon and it only happens once this year.

If the skies are clear then there should be no difficulty spotting the supermoon. Not only will it be a supermoon, it will also be a blue moon and there will be a partial lunar eclipse for us in the CSRA!

During moonrise, "you will experience the optical illusion which makes the moon appear larger when viewed against the horizon", Faherty said. The Moon takes about 27.32 days to orbit Earth. According to The Old Farmer's Almanac, supermoons appear up to 14 percent larger, and up to 30 percent brighter, than regular full moons.

Phil Anschutz might sell his movie theater chain, Regal Entertainment
Regal Entertainment Group (NYSE: RGC)'s market cap, the total dollar value of all of their outstanding shares, is 2945.68m. Finding that delicate risk balance can turn out to be the difference between sinking and swimming in the equity markets.

Stargazers are in for a spectacular treat since the supermoon has not approached Earth since November 14 2016. Another major hallmark of a supermoon is that the Earth, moon and sun are all perfectly aligned. While I lived here, I witnessed some of the most incredible moon rises I've ever seen in my life, and each month I was completely moonstruck while watching these otherworldly full moon ascensions.

These are particularly high tides that can influence the oceans and raise sea level by a number of inches.
