The First Of Three Supermoons Lit Up The Sky This Weekend And The

This weekend will feature the biggest, brightest full moon of the year, and catching it should be pretty easy for just about everyone. The supermoon will reappear on the celestial stage on January 1 and 31, 2018, NASA said. A new moon is the first phase in the lunar cycle that occurs when the moon is in conjunction with the sun - but is not visible from Earth.

The supermoon, as it's called, will appear in the night sky on the evening of December 3rd.

The biggest and brightest supermoon in 70 years illuminated the night sky across New Zealand last night. Sunday's moon is the first of three consecutive supermoons.

A moon sets Monday, Dec. 4, 2017, behind Universal's Volcano Bay in Orlando, Fla.

According to ESPN , Riley, Hill and LiAngelo Ball were subject to review for possible violations to UCLA's Student Conduct Code. President Trump , who was on a tour of Asia, personally intervened with President Xi Jinping of China to get the issue settled.

Whether it is was the prospect of standing outside in the cold weather, cloud cover, or your awful memory that meant you missed last night's supermoon then fear not.

At the exact moment of full moon, it was 358,499km from Earth, closer than the average distance of 384,472km. The moon will appear larger, up to 14 percent, and brighter than usual. Since the moon's orbit is elliptical, one side (apogee) is about 30,000 miles (50,000 km) farther from Earth than the other (perigee).

The next supermoon full moons will be on January 1st and January 31st.
