Supermoon to light up the sky this weekend

The supermoon seen over Ithaca on Nov. 13 2016

That supermoon will also be the second full moon of the month, making it a "super blue moon".

The supermoon will also showcase the bigger size than average moon on the following days. When the moon is full during the portion of its orbit that brings it closest to Earth, Space.com reports, a supermoon occurs. But that doesn't mean this weekend's supermoon won't be lovely - expect a full moon at least 7% bigger and 16% brighter than usual.

While scientists argue about the influence of the close passing of Earth's natural satellite for geophysical processes, the Moon is inexorably approaching and promises to be an interesting phenomenon for all the earthlings who are lucky enough to see this spectacle. But for not-so-close observers?

"The supermoon is a 16-inch pizza compared with a 15-inch pizza", he says.

How can I see the supermoon?

Fortunately, Tyson's word isn't gospel, whether we're talking about supermoons, dwarf planets or adjectives vs. nouns.

Stargazers will get a chance to witness the first and only supermoon of this year Sunday night.

Astrologer Richard Nolle defined a supermoon in 1979, but the term has really taken off in the past few years. (That won't happen until 4 a.m. on December 4 when the moon is a little over 222,000 miles away from the Earth.) For those would prefer to check out the supermoon from the comfort of the climate-controlled indoors, there are at least two live stream options. After that, there will be supermoons on January 2 and January 31, 2018. Due to heavy pollution and the recent cyclone forecast, there might be bad news for city star gazers as Bengalureans might or might not be able to see the Super Moon at all with such overcast skies.
