Supermoon To Shine Over Idaho Sunday

Jackson and the Physics Department at Boise State will have telescopes up Friday to let you get a closer look at the moon.

Full moon is Sunday, Dec. 3.

If it's not cloudy, you can see the supermoon on Sunday afternoon and evening in Idaho.

December's full moon will mark the beginning of a series SUPERLINE, two supertunia expected in January, which happens very rarely.

Stargazers are in for a spectacular treat since the supermoon has not approached Earth since November 14 2016.

Why? The timing has to be just right.

Meanwhile in Edinburgh, spectators will begin to see the moonrise at 4.15pm and watch it set the next day at 8.49am. This makes the moon appear 14 percent larger and 30 percent brighter than usual.

What if the moon and planets were closer to Earth?

The distance between the moon and Earth constantly changes. That's when it was the smallest full moon for this year.

Astronaut Edwin Aldrin walks by the footpad of Apollo 11. The orbit of the moon is an elliptical; there are times in the moon's orbit where it is closer to the Earth, and other times when it is farther away.

Last year, when the full moon of November 14, 2016 was the closest supermoon in nearly 70 years, the media attention was somewhat pitched, and NASA responded with some advice from one of its senior photographers on how to best snap a shot.

Lyle Tavernier from Nasa's Jet Propulsion Lab said: "The Moon doesn't orbit in a ideal circle".

The supermoon (when the moon is in the phase of the full moon passes the point of perigee, i.e.is at the minimum distance from Earth) will occur at 19:49, it can be observed until the morning of December 4 over the southern horizon. The Moon will get closest to the Earth on Monday evening when it reaches a distance of 222,135 miles from Earth, which is known as the lunar perigee.

Many assume it's hard to differentiate between a supermoon and a regular full moon.

It takes the Moon just slightly over 27 days to fully orbit the Earth, and during this time the natural satellite reaches both its apogee and perigee.

"That's what the term "supermoon" refers to".
