He said the Super Full Moon will be visible in the east of the night sky of December 3 after the sun sets from 6.00pm.

"Perigee refers to the moon being at its closest distance to the Earth, and syzygy refers to the alignment of multiple bodies - the moon, Earth and sun need to be aligned for us to see a full moon". On that day, our satellite will be approaching the Earth very close to 358,400 kilometers, so the moon will be 7% larger and 16% brighter than an ordinary full moon.

The astronomical term for a supermoon is "perigee syzygy".

At that moment, the moon will not be visible over most of North America.

The year's biggest, brightest supermoon is set to grace OR skies this Sunday.

Due to the optical effect known as the moon illusion, the full moon can seem huge when rising behind distant objects on the horizon.

For the best possible view, the supermoon will reach its closest point to Earth and appear largest in the sky on Monday, Dec. 4, at 3:45 a.m.

The moon's orbit around the Earth is not a flawless circle, meaning the distance between the two bodies grows and shrinks as the lunar planet plods eternal laps around us.
