That combination will make the moon seem about 14 percent larger in diameter than usual this weekend, NASA said. Based on the moon's rotation this month's full moon - which is also being called the Cold Moon - will be at its closest point to Earth, creating the Supermoon.
"For this year's final supermoon, the perigee distance will be approximately 222,135 miles in the early morning hours of December 4 (in the United States)", says Nichols. This means that during a full rotation of the Moon manages to pass as the furthest and closest point to our planet.
On Saturday, the distance between the earth and moon was 3,57,492 km. "Sometimes during the year we get an opportunity to see the full moon when it is at its closest point and that's what we'll be seeing on December 3".
It's worth noting that a supermoon technically occurs during a new moon, too, but that phenomenon usually isn't referred to as a supermoon since new moons are not visible in the night sky.
Supermoons are squishy because there's no official astronomical definition of the term. Supermoons are set to occur twice in January, on the 2nd and 31st.
The Moon will lose its brightness and take on an eerie, fainter-than-normal glow from the scant sunlight that makes its way through Earth's atmosphere.
While the moon is undoubtedly both bigger and brighter than usual, our eyes tend to trick us into seeing the moon as larger than it truly is.
