  • Viewers Snap Breathtaking Supermoon Pictures From Around the ...

It looked rather XXL in last night's clear skies - so much so that you might have been tempted to say, "That's no moon..." The next two will occur on Jan. 1, 2018, and Jan. 31; since the supermoon on Jan. 31 will be the second full moon in January, it's dubbed a Blue Moon, and will occur during a total lunar eclipse. And they weren't disappointed by what they saw. Just how close that closest point to Earth is goes through a regular cycle. The supermoon causes both higher and lower tides.

Sunday's moon is the first of three consecutive supermoons. About twice each year, a full Moon lines up perfectly with the Earth and Sun such that Earth's shadow totally blocks the Sun's light, which would normally reflect off the Moon.

The very concept of a Super Moon is an embarrassment to everything else we call super: "Supernova, Supercollider, Superman, Super Mario Bros", the popular physicist said Sunday.

The most recent supermoon was around a year ago on November 14th, 2016.

December's full moon, traditionally known as the Cold Moon, appears bigger and brighter in the sky as it sits closer than average to Earth.


It's when a full moon and a perigee moon happen at the same time.

Considering the moon is always more than 225,744 miles away, it's not a major change.

Skygazers enjoyed magical views as a dazzling supermoonrose across Britain.

The supermoon rises behind the mountain range seen from Naypyitaw, Myanmar, Sunday, Dec. 3, 2017.
