First (and last) supermoon of 2017 is coming

03 December 2017

As if that weren't enough: This supermoon, the only one visible in 2017, is also a Super Frost Moon.

While it has been a year since a visible supermoon last lit up the sky, everyone in the world has a chance to marvel at this upcoming full moon.

Arvind Paranjpye, director of the Nehru Planetarium at Nehru Centre, Mumbai, told The Indian Express that the supermoon appears to be nearly 14 per cent larger and about 30 per cent brighter than the normal full moon, as seen from Earth.

Florida State Seminoles coach Jimbo Fisher to take Texas A&M coaching job
Fisher came to Florida State as offensive coordinator in 2007 and was named the head coach in waiting following that season. Fisher will take the position immediately and not coach in Florida State's regular season finale against Louisiana-Monroe.

Each month the moon rotates around the earth in an ellipse rather than a flawless circle. When a full moon is closer to our planet, the tide levels are often higher. When this happened previous year, the moon appeared up to 14 percent larger and 30 percent brighter than normal. According to MSN, the best time to view the supermoon is when the moon is sitting on the horizon, right after the moonrise and before the sunrise.

Still, Sunday's supermoon - a nonscientific term that refers to when a full moon coincides with its perigee, the point in its orbit when it makes its closest approach to Earth - should appear larger and brighter than usual.

This weekend will be a good time to relax, look up at the sky and take in the glowing moon.

Jay-Z, other rap and R&B artists, lead Grammy nominations
While the obvious Grammy prediction would be Bruno Mars , it would be a shame not to see a rap album win the award. Jay-Z received eight nominations for his album "4:44", and Kendrick Lamar received seven for his album " DAMN ".

While the moon is undoubtedly both bigger and brighter than usual, our eyes tend to trick us into seeing the moon as larger than it truly is. Even so, the supermoon is still worth viewing. NASA officials said the second supermoon is coming on New Year's Day.

If you won't be able to witness the Supermoon on Sunday, don't worry because there will be a few more in the near future.

For everyone waiting to catch a glimpse of the last supermoon of 2017, taking pictures to preserve the moment can be easy.

"The supermoon gets headlines because the moon's a little bigger and a little brighter, but people get frustrated that they can't always tell the difference".
