2017's one and only supermoon soars over Washington

The supermoon is seen in the sky while a farmer walks with cows in Naypyitaw, Myanmar, Sunday, Dec. 3, 2017.

This weekend the moon was at its closest point to the Earth or at perigee.

The only so-called supermoon of 2017 was shining bright over the Borders as it set this morning, December 4. The moon appears to be bigger and brighter due to its orbit around the Earth.

Supermoon rising, December 2. The next two will occur on January 1 and January 31, 2018. So most full moons occur at a point on the moon's orbit anywhere but perigee.

On January 31, the supermoon will feature a total lunar eclipse, and the totality will be viewable from western North America across the pacific to Eastern Asia. It appeared about seven per cent larger and 15 per cent brighter. When those times line up with the full moon, we are treated to the spectacle of a supermoon. The Dec. 3 full moon will be the first of three consecutive supermoons.

Tom Kerss, an astronomer at Royal Observatory Greenwich, said the exact moment of full moon - when the moon sits opposite the sun in the sky, which was 3.47pm (10.47am ET) today in the United Kingdom.

The first-ever glimpse of the Supermoon trilogy has already started and the next two supermoons will occur in the same months and will actually be a "blue" supermoon.

EarthSky notes this January super blue moon "will pass right through the Earth's shadow", making for a super blue moon eclipse!
