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. This is due to an optical illusion that makes the super moon appear much bigger and brighter than it will look when it rises higher in the sky.

This solar event will take place tomorrow night and it has also been noted that the supermoon will coincide with the lunar eclipse in September 2033 (a date for your diary now) as this only happens a couple of times in a person's lifetime.

When is this weekend's supermoon?

The full moon on Sunday night will be a supermoon and will be bigger and brighter than usual.

Look for December's Supermoon this Weekend!

When was the last supermoon?

NASA calls it the supermoon trilogy, with the next two occurring on January 1 and January 31.

The day after the moon will be at its closest to earth in the month.

When is the next supermoon?

Those who miss out to view the supermoon in person can catch up with the sighting as the astronomical spectacle will be live streamed by robotic telescope service (Slooh). At its perigee, the moon will be just 222,135 miles from Earth, almost 16,000 miles closer than it normally is throughout the year, according to NASA. If you want to celebrate the year's most super supermoon as a holiday for moongazers, I don't see anything wrong with that. The celestial events will be visible on both January 2 and January 31, but those conclude the remainder of 2018's supermoons, so make them count.
