Does This Month Make My Moon Look Big?
Alright Lunar lovers, this is going to be your month. Next week features another “Supermoon”.
Charlie Rose office jokes aside, if you enjoy watching the skies you'll want to be looking up at next week's Supermoon when the big yellow ball is at its closest point to Earth, making it appear bigger & brighter than usual.
According to National Geographic, the phenomenon begins with the December full moon officially occurring at 7:47 a.m. Pacific Time Sunday December 3rd.
As the day moves into night, the moon will appear 7 percent larger and 16 percent brighter than usual, and will be at its closest lunar point to earth at 1 a.m. Pacific on Monday December 4th.
Supermoons are cool but not exactly rare, this being this being the fourth of 2017. (UPI)
