Supermoon to light up the sky this weekend

Take a Glimpse of the Super Sky Show The Supermoon

When this happened past year, the moon appeared up to 14 percent larger and 30 percent brighter than normal.

Pakistan Meteorological Department (PMD) has denied reports of supermoon sighting in Pakistan in a statement issued on Saturday by clearing that it would be full moon instead.

That's when the moon is full and illuminated at the same time it comes closest to the Earth during its orbit.

The moon will be visible to see on Sunday after 5 p.m. when it begins to rise, however, it won't officially be a Supermoon until it is at its closest point to Earth, which will be at approximately 4 a.m. on Monday.

There will be one on New Year's Day followed by another on January 31, which, according to NASA, will be a "super blue blood moon". Hence, for those in the Northern hemisphere, it is a cold supermoon.

The final supermoon of 2017 will be visible in the night sky this weekend.

Supermoons are squishy because there's no official astronomical definition of the term.

The Dec. 3. supermoon will become completely full at 7:47 a.m. PST, according to Space.com. Even more so if it's a supermoon. It's more like an oval, so at times it's closer to the Earth than it is at other times. This is because the previous two were around the time of a new moon, which isn't visible in the sky.

Just to be clear, the supermoon is only the moon-there will be no eclipse and no colors.

If you miss this year's supermoon, don't worry.

A supermoon is also believed to have an impact on the Earth's waters.

The supermoon which was last seen on November 14, 2016 is set to re-appear tomorrow evening on December 3.

"Often I find when the moon is near the horizon I have a better chance of incorporating it with a landmark or person, but there are no rules and sometimes a tall object such as the Washington Monument here in D.C. can be used when the moon is at a very high angle".

"The supermoon gets headlines because the moon's a little bigger and a little brighter, but people get frustrated that they can't always tell the difference".
