Supermoon expected in skies above Gedling borough on Sunday
01 December 2017, 05:50 | Bernard Bryant
Bigger and brighter than a typical full moon, the term "supermoon" was coined in 1979 by astrologer Richard Nolle.
December's full moon - which is traditionally known as the Cold Moon - will appear in the sky 14 percent bigger and 30 percent brighter than usual on Sunday (3).
So while the two aren't exactly aligned, it will mean the mostly full moon rising Sunday night will be a sight to see. At that point, the moon will be just 222,135 miles from Earth, almost 16,000 miles closer than it normally is throughout the year. Its apogee, or farthest distance away can be more than 252,000 miles away. The moon will be 16 percent more luminous and 7 percent bigger than it normally appears, National Geographic revealed.
At that point, it may appear a little bigger and brighter than usual.
This Sunday will make selenographists the world over very happy, as a bigger and brighter moon is set to be visible as it moves closer towards Earth. This supermoon will be the first in the series of three consecutive full moon supermoons, the next two to occur in January.

Some Native American tribes also call the December full moon the Long Nights Moon.
Wellington: In New Zealand's capital Wellington city, the full moon will be observed at 4:46 am local time on December 4.
This supermoon won't be quite as special as last year's.
Where can I see the supermoon?
