Tomorrow - We will see the supermoon for the first time in 2017

Supermoon Alert! Sunday's Full Moon Will Be 2017's Only Supermoon

Because of the moon's extra-close approach to Earth, it will appear about 14 per cent bigger than if it were at its farthest away point in its orbit.

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. The idea merely reflects the fact that the moon's apparent size varies depending on how close it gets in its elliptical orbit around Earth. 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. The weather in West Michigan looks to cooperate with partly cloudy to mostly clear skies from Saturday evening to Sunday morning.

Those who miss out to view the supermoon in person can catch up with the sighting as the astronomical spectacle will be live streamed by robotic telescope service (Slooh).

For the Supermoon can be observed on 3 December from 19:00 Kyiv time. The Moon's orbit around our planet is tilted so it usually falls above or below the shadow of the Earth.

The moon will appear to be about 14 percent bigger and 30 percent brighter.

You'll be able to watch the supermoon starting on Sunday Dec. 3. The next supermoon will occur just after the new year on January 2. 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.

If you miss the first viewing, another good time to sneak a peek is when the supermoon reaches its peak at 4 a.m. on December 4.

Though this will be the fourth supermoon of 2017, the previous three were not visible because they coincided with new moons.
