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.

Did you see 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. 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.

The supermoon is seen in the sky while a farmer walks with cows in Naypyitaw, Myanmar, Sunday, Dec. 3, 2017.

The supermoon on the 31st will also feature a total lunar eclipse visible in western North America.

The Supermoon, or Full Cold Moon, made its first and last appearance of 2017 on Sunday night. Icerink opened for skating at full moon.

The final supermoon of 2018 will occur just a few weeks later, on January 31, with extra superlatives. A Blue supermoon is said to occur when two full moons occur in the same month.
