Super Full Moon this Sunday (but we may have too many clouds in Phuket)

2017's Only Supermoon Is Happening This Weekend. Here's How to See it

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. Each month's full moon holds its very own unique name. According to NASA, it's used by the media today to describe what astronomers would call a perigean full moon: a full moon occurring near or at the time when the moon is at its closest point in its orbit around Earth. Not only will the supermoon be about 7-percent larger, visually speaking, it'll also be about 16-percent brighter.

It was not until 1979 that Astrologer Richard Nolle first invented the term supermoon. But it can be viewed Sunday night or Monday morning if the skies are clear.

Clear skies are forecast across much of the eastern US, except for New England and around the Great Lakes, the National Weather Service said. In the upper Midwest, Rockies, Northern Plains and the Northwest, the clouds are likely to block the sight of the supermoon.

The December full moon, even when its not a supermoon, is known as the cold moon. The moon will arrive at perigee, the point in its orbit which is closest to the earth, at 3:45 am. The average Earth-Moon distance (382,900 km) rises by about 5% at the peak and decreases by 5% in the perimeter.

January 2018 will have two full moons on January 2 and 31, both of which are considered super-moons, because the moon will again be near his cellar.

Do not miss beholding the big and bright supermoon on Sunday night provided the weather gods are favourable enough to grant the "heavenly" vision.
