2017 Supermoon Visible Sunday Night
Sunday night will be the only visible supermoon of 2017. According to WIVB, "this is because the previous two were around the time of a new moon, which isn’t visible in the sky. While the moon is undoubtedly both bigger and brighter than usual, our eyes tend to trick us into seeing the moon as larger than it truly is."
According to Michelle Nichols, director of public observing at Chicago’s Adler Planetarium, "for this year’s final supermoon, the perigee distance will be approximately 222,135 miles in the early morning hours of December 4 (in the United States)."
