The Supermoon of December is upon us. Amazing skywatching underway. What is a supermoon? It's when the Moon's somewhat elliptical orbit brings it closer to Earth than average and when it coincides with full moon status, that makes it Supermoon.
This December full moon, also called the Cold Moon, occurs at 9:47 am central time on December 3rd. But with the Moon so close to Earth, it appears as a big, cold light, full sphere on nights both before an after its true astronomical fullness.
So put aside all the technical details and just enjoy. Join the rest of us Moon lovers or just take a moment with those you love to take in this beautiful sight.
