The super moon will officially occur at 3.47 pm in the United Kingdom on December 3, and experts say it should be visible wherever you are in South Yorkshire.

December's full moon is known as the Cold Moon or Frost Moon in the northern hemisphere. Since the moon's orbit is elliptical, one side (apogee) is about 30,000 miles (50,000 km) farther from Earth than the other (perigee).

Though this event is actually the fourth supermoon of 2017, the first three were not visible to the naked eye because they occurred during a new moon, when the darkened face of the moon is facing Earth.

"The moon's orbit is not a circle, it's sort of an egg shape so sometimes it's further away and sometimes it's close to us", Head of Astronomy at the Cranbrook Institute of Science in Bloomfield Hills Michael Narlock told WWJ Newsradio 950's Jason Scott. About twice each year, a full Moon lines up perfectly with the Earth and Sun such that Earth's shadow totally blocks the Sun's light, which would normally reflect off the Moon. It is anticipated that it will be within 222,443 miles from our planet at 4 pm on December 4.

The best time to see it will be as the moon rises just after sunset, according to National Geographic.

Earlier in November previous year, PMD announced sighting of a full moon in the country that was 14% bigger and 30% brighter than the normal full moon because of its closest distance from the earth.

As he left the field, Harris appeared to point toward the Oakland sideline, motioning as if he had been hit by a Raiders player. A host of Broncos came to Talib's defense, despite the fact that Talib had managed to work his way on top of Crabtree.

The first - and final - supermoon of 2017 will begin around 8 p.m. Sunday and reach its perigee at 3:45 a.m. Monday.

The moon is nearly full Saturday night and will be full Sunday.

For the Supermoon can be observed on 3 December from 19:00 Kyiv time.

If you're unable to see the supermoon, you won't have to wait long for another opportunity. This effect is termed as "moon illusion".

"If you stretch out your arm at full length, and stretch out your thumb, and compare the size of the full moon in the sky to the size of your thumb, you'll notice the width of the full moon compared to the size of your thumb; you can put four full moons across the width of your thumb". That'll be a super moon, even by Neil deGrasse Tyson's standards.
