When to watch the 2017 supermoon in New Orleans

People watch the supermoon rising in Dar es Salaam

In order to see the moon most clearly, stargazers should opt to travel outside of city limits; light pollution from the city lights obscures the view.

The only supermoon of 2017 occurs this Sunday, Dec. 3rd. According to scientists, it will be large enough to warrant a super early wake-up call to check it out. The moon should sit near the constellation Taurus, though it shouldn't be hard to spot. There will be another supermoon on January 2, 2018.

A supermoon, of course, is no bigger than the moon at any given time, but the term refers to when a new or full moon coincides with the lunar orbit coming in close proximity to Earth, according to National Geographic.

The sky will be illuminated with a brighter than usual glow from the moon Sunday as Earth welcomes its first - and last -supermoon of 2017. How big will it be? The gravitational forces exerted by the moon and sun are at their greatest at this time. "This is when, weather permitting, it will appear at its clearest and brightest". Translation: Be sure to step outside Sunday night and take a look at the sky. If you choose to watch it live, check what local time you should tune in here.

"If you stretch out your arm at full length, and stretch out your thumb, and compare the size of the full moon in the sky to the size of your thumb, you'll notice the width of the full moon compared to the size of your thumb; you can put four full moons across the width of your thumb". During an occurrence, the full moon generally appears up to 14 percent bigger and 30 percent brighter than an apogee full moon.
