The next supermoon is on Sunday, December 3 2017 when the Moon is full Moon and at a distance of, approximately, 357,495 km from Earth.
A supermoon is the coicidence of either a new Moon or full Moon with the Moon at perigee. The Moon at perigee is the closest point to Earth in the Moon's orbit. Because the supermoon is closest to Earth, it looks bigger and brighter. It may look up to 14% bigger!
The following images were taken from the northern and southern hemisphere, respectively, during full Moon.
The following table shows the dates of the last and next Supermoons. The table tells the moon phase that is ocurring, the precise time the moon phase takes place, the precise time the Moon is at perigee, and the aproximate distance in kilometers between the center of the Moon and the center of the Earth. Because the occurrence of a solar eclipse or lunar eclipse during a supermoon is possible, we have included relevant eclipse information as well. The date and time shown in the table are UTC.
