Super Frost Moon Super Frost Moon

Pakistan Meteorological Department (PMD) has denied reports of supermoon sighting in Pakistan in a statement issued on Saturday by clearing that it would be full moon instead.

By NASA's calculations, the moon will appear as much as 14 percent bigger and 30 percent brighter to many viewers around the world. NASA said that the January 31 super moon will have a moon total eclipse, visible from the west of North America through the Pacific Ocean up to the east of Asia.

The finest time span to observe the supermoon is right after the moonrise and just before the sunrise, but the moon will stun throughout its voyage across the sky.

This Sunday's supermoon will appear a little tiresome in comparison, only appearing seven percent larger and 16 percent brighter. Even so, the supermoon is still worth viewing. It appears the biggest and brightest during this time because of a "moon illusion" effect, which is created when you're able to compare the moon to other objects for scale. Sunday, Dec. 3, 2017, will be residents the only chance this year to see the "supermoon".

It is believed that for a moon to be considered a supermoon it must be within 226,000 miles from the earth. You'll want at least a light jacket as temperatures drop into the mid 40s overnight. NASA calls it the supermoon trilogy, with the next two occurring on January 1 and January 31. You can also watch a livestream from the Virtual Telescope Project.

A supermoon occurs when there is a full moon at or near the point where the moon reaches perigee.
