The brightest supermoon of 2017 will light up the skies over Merseyside this weekend.
Known as the ‘cold moon’ as it appears on a cold night in December, the supermoon will be visible on the night of December 3rd.
The supermoon will be the brightest of the year as it appears during a full moon unlike previous appearances, which means it will provide a spectacular look at our nearest celestial neighbour.

The moon is usually about 238,000 miles away from Earth. But because its orbit isn’t a perfect circle, it sometimes gets much closer.
During December 3rd it will be a mere 222,135 miles away from the Earth and will be 14% bigger and 30% brighter than usual.
It is the last supermoon of 2017. The next is on 2nd January 2018.
