Look for December's Supermoon this Weekend!

Look for December's Supermoon this Weekend!

The result is that the full "super" moon appears slightly larger and slightly brighter to us in the sky.

December's full moon is known as the Cold Moon or Frost Moon in the northern hemisphere.

Supermoons of all sizes happen because the moon's orbit is not quite circular and the Earth isn't quite at the center of it. Closer to eight o'clock in the evening of 3 December, the Moon will approach the minimum distance, and then will gradually be removed.

It will shine up to 30 per cent brighter, not only because it's close to Earth, but also because Earth will be nearing its closest to the sun in early January. When a full moon is closer to our planet, the tide levels are often higher. According to MSN, the best time to view the supermoon is when the moon is sitting on the horizon, right after the moonrise and before the sunrise. But that doesn't mean this weekend's supermoon won't be attractive - expect a full moon at least 7% bigger and 16% brighter than usual.

The Moon will lose its brightness and take on an eerie, fainter-than-normal glow from the scant sunlight that makes its way through Earth's atmosphere.

"It is said that the moon appears larger because we compare it with terrestrial objects such as trees or buildings". Part of it depends on where you're viewing the supermoon.
