Supermoon to light up the night sky on December 3
This weekend the moon will get bigger and brighter than it has been all year round.
TOMONEWS MOON BASE — Budding astronomers will be able to take in a super moon this on December 3.
During a supermoon event, the lunar body can become bigger and up to 30% brighter.
This is because the moon orbits closer to the Earth than it does in a regular orbit.
NASA advises that a supermoon is best viewed outside a city due as powerful urban lights can diminish how bright it actually is.
