Watch tonight the closest and brightest supermoon of this year last time



The third and the last supermoon of 2014 can be seen tonight. Look at the moon tonight and tomorrow night to view the lunar splendour of a bigger and brighter full moon. The next supermoon will appear in late September of 2015.

A supermoon is a full moon or new moon at perigee or when it is closest to earth with syzygy or when the Earth, the Moon and the Sun are aligned. The opposite phenomenon, an apogee-syzygy, is called a micromoon.

The term supermoon is not used within the astronomical community, which uses the term perigee-syzygy for the commonly known as supermoon.
