MaxFacts: SUPER MOON TONIGHT

MaxSez: The last full moon of 2017 is going to appear a little bigger and brighter than most in the Northern Hemisphere tonight, Dec. 3, 2017. The evening will bring a supermoon, meaning a full moon that happens at perigee ― the same time in the lunar cycle that the moon is closest to the earth. (A new moon at perigee is also sometimes called a supermoon, but those aren’t visible from Earth.) On this particular occasion, the moon will appear 7 percent larger and 16 percent brighter than usual. Not only will this be the only full supermoon of 2017, it’s also going to kick off a series of three full supermoons in a row. The full moons on Jan. 2 and Jan. 31 not only will be super moons, they’ll be blue super moons — a “blue moon” meaning the second full moon in a single month. (Pls consider adding your photo of these Super Moons with your physical location & Type, actual or IF, to this Topic at your pleasure.) **Will these Super Moons appear in the IF Sky?**Thanks & Regards All
