You Can See An Enormous Supermoon Illuminating Vancouver This Weekend

NASA's Scientific Visualization Studio

One needs to be present below the equator to see both the sun and moon in the sky at once, as per space.com.

If you miss this one, however, don't fret: The first two full moons of 2018 will be supermoons. On November 14, 2016, the moon was closer to Earth than at any time in nearly 69 years.

On Sunday, Dec. 3 is when the moon will become totally full and at its brightest, specifically at 10:47 a.m. EST that Sunday, rising that same evening around 6 p.m. EST.

It's been a year since the visible supermoon last graced our skies, when the full moon was closest to the Earth.

The next full moon you're going to see will be absolutely extraordinary.

. During its orbit, the moon passes through two points: Perigee and apogee.

At that point, it may appear a little bigger and brighter than usual. It will officially reach perigee the next day, December 4, at 3:45 a.m. ET when it is 222,135 miles away from Earth - almost 16,000 miles closer than it normally is throughout the year, Space.com reports.

The best time to enjoy the supermoon is right after moonrise and before sunrise, when the moon is sitting on the horizon.

HTC U11 Users Will Receive Android 8.0 Oreo Update Starting Today
Now, the company has announced that HTC U11 users in the U.S. will be getting the Android 8.0 Oreo update starting from today. With the latest update, the smartphone will have picture-in-picture mode that lets users to two tasks simultaneously.

But for those who can't wake up that early, the moon will still look bigger - and brighter - throughout the night. In fact, the change in the moon's apparent size throughout its orbit is imperceptible to the unaided eye.

What time is the supermoon?

What's the best way to photograph the supermoon?

Astronomers say the moon will appear as much as 14 percent bigger and 30 percent brighter to many viewers around the world.

"Tap the screen and hold your finger on the object (in this case, the moon) to lock the focus".

This supermoon won't be quite as special as last year's.
