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. When the moon is full during the portion of its orbit that brings it closest to Earth, Space.com reports, a supermoon occurs. 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!

The super moon will officially occur at 3.47 pm in the United Kingdom on December 3, and experts say it should be visible wherever you are in South Yorkshire. "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". When a full moon is closer to our planet, the tide levels are often higher.

Supermoon is the term given to the moon when it's two cycles around the earth match up.

If you don't think you'll want to leave the comfort of your own home to view the celestial event, there will be two livestreams of the supermoon.

Or, you know-you could just look out your window.

For the third challenge, the government vows that the United Kingdom will "become a world leader in shaping the future of mobility ".

This optical illusion also occurs when watching the supermoon immediately after sunset (or before sunrise). This is also why both times are the best for watching the supermoon. On the three dates marked, step out into the moonset or moonrise and look up for a trilogy of sky watching treats! That'll be a super moon, even by Neil deGrasse Tyson's standards.

When was the last supermoon?

For those using DSLR cameras, Ingalls recommends using another subject in the image, like a person, pet or landmark to compare to the size of the moon. "But it's another great chance to watch the Moon".

"The supermoon gets headlines because the moon's a little bigger and a little brighter, but people get frustrated that they can't always tell the difference".

"You can do the experiment with your outstretched thumb". Then do it somewhere else.
