Supermoon to Light Up the Sky for the First Time in 2017

Supermoon 2016

Supermoon 2016

The moon will definitely look brighter and larger, but unfortunately, it's not going to be as large as the November 2016 supermoon was. But if that's too late for you to stay up, don't worry, the moon will still appear larger than normal when it's closer to the Earth's horizon during sunset on December 3 and sunrise on December 4.

New York City: On December 3, the full moon will rise in the evening at 4:59 pm at local time. It will also appear 30 percent brighter.

According to NASA, supermoons happen when the moon is full at the point in its orbit at which it is closest to Earth, also known as the moon's perigee.

Chicopee to hold Christmas tree lighting, visit from Santa
Begin your day in Louisa with some holiday shopping at the Christmas festival at Courthouse Square, at 10 a.m. Marching bands, Christmas-themed floats and Santa Claus will take to downtown streets for holiday parades.

The best time for moon-watching will be just after sunset, when the moon is beginning to rise. The moon will set at 6:10 am, half an hour after sunrise takes place at 5:41 am. According to University of Arizona professor Gurtina Besla, there's also a peak viewing time at 3:45 a.m. ET on Monday, Dec. 4. This is actually the first and only visible supermoon of 2017.

The distance between the moon and Earth constantly changes.

However, December's full moon is the only visible supermoon.

Destiny 2 servers offline tomorrow for 6 hours
Bungie will be uploading a new podcast shortly featuring Luke Smith and Mark Noseworthy addressing the condition of the game. This change was not clarified and is one of many issues that is creating trust issues between fans and Bungie.

Though it will technically be the fourth supermoon of the year, none of the other three were visible as they came in the new moon phase, when the face of the moon shows black.

While the moon is undoubtedly both bigger and brighter than usual, our eyes tend to trick us into seeing the moon as larger than it truly is.

Still, don't sleep on the supermoon expected Sunday: It's the only one we'll see for all of 2017. The best time to watch a supermoon is when it's low, near the horizon. The moon will be 16 percent more luminous and 7 percent bigger than it normally appears, National Geographic revealed.
