Year's brightest supermoon coming to OR skies Sunday night

Year's brightest supermoon coming to OR skies Sunday night

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

Mr Kerss explained: "During moonrise and moonset, you might think the moon looks unusually large, but this is an illusion created in the mind when it appears close to the horizon".

The moon won't actually change during this event, but it will be a lot closer to earth.

In most of the northern hemisphere, the December Supermoon will be dubbed a "Full Cold Moon" due to the season we're in.

- Skies will be bright with the light of a Full Cold Moon Sunday night. According to NASA, it's used by the media today to describe what astronomers would call a perigean full moon: a full moon occurring near or at the time when the moon is at its closest point in its orbit around Earth.

A supermoon occurs when the sun, moon and Earth align, and a full or new moon aligns with the sun's lunar orb.

Part of it depends on where you're viewing the supermoon. They appear up to 14% bigger and 30% brighter than normal. The moon will still be super-sized when it becomes visible that evening and will officially reach its perigee at 3:45 a.m. ET on December 4.

That's because the timing has to be just right.

But for those who can't wake up that early, the moon will still look bigger - and brighter - throughout the night. The full moon won't come that close again until 2034.

When the supermoon is viewed low on the horizon, it appears huge.

What's the best way to photograph the supermoon?

The moon will be 16 percent more luminous and 7 percent bigger than it normally appears, National Geographic revealed.

To get an original shot, Ingalls suggests taking a picture that puts the moon in context of a local landmark, something that gives your photo a sense of place.

Do I need special glasses to watch the supermoon?
