Skywatchers: See full supermoon on December 3

Before you dig out your telescope, however, here's what you need to know about the only supermoon of 2017 - and the best time to view it.

According to National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), the full moon will also occur near the moon's arrival at perigee on January 1 and January 31. Sunday, Dec. 3, 2017, will be residents the only chance this year to see the "supermoon".

Tomorrow will mark the closest the moon will orbit to the earth all year round and will appear bigger and brighter than usual. Closer to eight o'clock in the evening of 3 December, the Moon will approach the minimum distance, and then will gradually be removed.

It won't be quite as bright as the last supermoon on November 14, 2016, when the moon was closer to Earth than at any time in almost 69 years.

You'll be able to watch the supermoon starting on Sunday Dec. 3.

This solar event will take place tomorrow night and it has also been noted that the supermoon will coincide with the lunar eclipse in September 2033 (a date for your diary now) as this only happens a couple of times in a person's lifetime. Since the moon's orbit is elliptical, one side (apogee) is about 30,000 miles (50,000 km) farther from Earth than the other (perigee). This makes the full moon appear even larger and luminous due to its increased proximity to the planet. And get ready for a total lunar eclipse on January 31.

If you miss the first viewing, another good time to sneak a peek is when the supermoon reaches its peak at 4 a.m. on December 4.

A Blue Moon refers to the second full moon in a calendar month - which is rare, since full moons occur every 29.5 days, according to NASA.
