Look east! 2017 supermoon rises tonight

Supermoon to brighten up skies on Sunday

The difference is noticeable for close observers - particularly if the moon is near the horizon, where it can be compared with terrestrial landmarks. My definition is stricter: There's only one supermoon in a given year, reserved for the full moon with the biggest apparent size.

It'll be full again on Sunday night, but you'll have to be more patient trying to get a good look at it.

As explained by astronomers, the phenomenon of SUPERLINE is due to the fact that the full Moon, moving on an elliptical orbit, suitable as close to the Ground. It makes the moon appear up to 14 percent lighter and 30 percent brighter.

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

It is believed that for a moon to be considered a supermoon it must be within 226,000 miles from the earth. But for not-so-close observers? "It's a slightly bigger moon; I ain't using the adjective 'supermoon'".

Kaley Cuoco is engaged!
The video sees a red-faced Kaley crying while she shows her hand to the camera. "You say these things". "We're engaged... Cook also shared a close-up of the gorgeous pear-shaped diamond ring he gave his bride-to-be. "I am so so so happy".

Weather permitting, the only full supermoon of 2017 can be seen in the night sky on Sunday, Dec. 3.

While you likely won't be blown away if you look for the supermoon with your naked eye, National Geographic says you may see enhanced effects using cameras with telephoto lenses, binoculars or telescopes.

If you're unable to see the supermoon, you won't have to wait long for another opportunity.

The Jan. 31 supermoon will feature a total lunar eclipse, which will cause the moon to take on a reddish hue, making it a "blood moon".

Mark your calendars: a series of three supermoons will appear on the celestial stage on December 3, 2017, January 1, 2018, and January 31, 2018. That'll be a super moon, even by Neil deGrasse Tyson's standards.
