Another term for a supermoon is "perigee syzygy", with syzygy describing the alignment of the moon, Earth, and sun in a straight line. Far passes are called "apogee".

According to Michelle Nichols, director of public observing at Chicago's Adler Planetarium, there is a reason behind the moon's captivating close approach to the Earth.

For the Supermoon can be observed on 3 December from 19:00 Kyiv time.

Ole Miss to receive NCAA ruling Friday

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". The moon swings about 50,000 km closer to the earth during a perigee pass, so it makes the full moon appear bigger and brighter than usual! Technically, in the night from Sunday to Monday we will rate for the fourth Supermoon of the year - the only one that can see with their own eyes. The supermoon will reach its perigee -the closest point in its orbit around the Earth - at 3:45 a.m. the following day.

The last full moon of 2017 is happening this weekend and will be the biggest and brightest of 2017!

If you're clouded out on Sunday, you can still get into the supermoon spirit on Sunday with streaming video from the Virtual Telescope Project or the Slooh online observatory.

When's the best time to view the supermoon?

Time your viewing for just after local sunset, National Geographic suggests, when the "moon illusion" will make the orb look especially large and vibrant.

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

While the supermoon can come out looking larger in photos (thanks to long lenses and editing) than it does when looking at it in person, Nichols says it is an incredible opportunity to get people interested in science and astronomy.
