Sunday brings about our monthly appearance of a full moon, but this weekend it will be especially spectacular.
The last supermoon occurred approximately a year ago on December 14. It is what astronomers call a perigean full moon, or a full moon when it is at its closest point in orbit around Earth, according to NASA.
On Saturday, the distance between the earth and moon was 3,57,492 km. The point farthest away from the Earth is called apogee. It is anticipated that it will be within 222,443 miles from our planet at 4 pm on December 4.
A supermoon can appear up to 30 percent brighter and 14 percent bigger than when the moon is at its farthest distance from Earth.
The moon is nearly full Saturday night and will be full Sunday.
Stargazers will get a chance to witness the first and only supermoon of this year Sunday night. Part of it depends on where you're viewing the supermoon.
