A supermoon only occurs when a full moon coincidentally falls during the period when the moon is the closest distance from Earth during its orbit.
The moon will become totally full on Sunday, and will be visible in the New York City sky between Sunday night and Monday morning.
Unusual astronomical phenomenon called the Supermoon, or perigee moon.The orbit of the moon around the Earth in form is not a flawless circle, and a few stretches.
A supermoon can appear up to 30 percent brighter and 14 percent bigger than when the moon is at its farthest distance from Earth.
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.
The full moon on Sunday night will be a supermoon and will be bigger and brighter than usual. But for not-so-close observers?
Fortunately, Tyson's word isn't gospel, whether we're talking about supermoons, dwarf planets or adjectives vs. nouns.
02 de diciembre de 2017, 00:16Washington, Dec 2 (Prensa Latina) A series of three supermoons will be soon be observed in the sky between December 3, January 1st and January 31, 2018, as announced by the US National Aeronautics and Space Agency (NASA). If you want to celebrate the year's most super supermoon as a holiday for moongazers, I don't see anything wrong with that.
You'll be able to watch the supermoon starting on Sunday Dec. 3. In fact, the supermoon slated for January 31, 2018, will be both, making it a Super Blue Moon. One is offered by the Virtual Telescope Project based in Rome. That'll be a super moon, even by Neil deGrasse Tyson's standards.
