Unbelievable supermoon photos captured from around the world

Supermoons usually seem 14 percent larger and 30 percent brighter than the average moon, according to Petro. So most full moons occur at a point on the moon's orbit anywhere but perigee. It indicated a new moon or full moon that came within 362,146 kilometers of the planet, as measured from the centers of the moon and Earth.

Losing its brightness, the Moon will take on a fainter-than-normal glow from the scant sunlight, that will give it a reddish hue.

"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. When those times line up with the full moon, we are treated to the spectacle of a supermoon.

Last year, the supermoon was spotted over other famous Buffalo landmarks including Shark Girl, the Richardson Olmsted Complex and Buffalo City Hall.
