Check out these brilliant photos of the December supermoon

This happens on a monthly basis, but occasionally the point of perigee aligns with a new or full moon and results in a "perigean spring tide".

Supermoons usually seem 14 percent larger and 30 percent brighter than the average moon, according to Petro.

Sunday night at its perigee, the moon will be nearly 50,000 kilometers closer than at its apogee, or farthest point.

The distance between the moon and Earth constantly changes.

Mr Kerss said: '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. Please include where and when you took the photo.

The Supermoon rises above Whitby Abbey in Whitby, north east England, Sunday Dec. 3, 2017. That's when we see two full moons in one calendar month.

The biggest and brightest supermoon in 70 years had Aucklanders in awe. That often causes the moon to shine with a reddish hue, in what's known as a 'blood moon'. The Dec. 3 full moon will be the first of three consecutive supermoons.

The second will occur on January 31.

This Supermoon didn't just light up the night skies, it also ignited tempers online, as astrophysicists argued the moon may not have been living up to its "super" name.

But the moon will still be big and full in the coming days, if the pictures are making you regret having missed it, or you want to relive the sight.
