Super moon to be seen on Sunday night

Super moon to be seen on Sunday night

The weather forecast calls for partly cloudy skies on Sunday night, and you can check the National Weather Service's graphical forecast for a more specific prediction.

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.

If you don't think you'll want to leave the comfort of your own home to view the celestial event, there will be two livestreams of the supermoon. The moon swings about 50,000 km closer to the earth during a perigee pass, so it makes the full moon appear bigger and brighter than usual! The Moon's orbit around our planet is tilted so it usually falls above or below the shadow of the Earth.

Monday's supermoon will appear about 14 per cent bigger than if it were at its farthest away point in its orbit and will shine up to 30 per cent brighter.

For the Supermoon can be observed on 3 December from 19:00 Kyiv time.

What's the difference between a supermoon and a Blue Moon?

If you're clouded out on Sunday, you can still get into the supermoon spirit on Sunday with streaming video from the Virtual Telescope Project or the Slooh online observatory.

"The supermoons are a great opportunity for people to start looking at the moon", said Noah Petro, a research scientist from NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center. But any time you catch a full Moon as it rises or sets, while it's suspended low on the horizon beaming through the silhouettes of trees or buildings, its apparent size might make you do a double-take.
