The full supermoon won't technically hit the USA until Monday morning (12:45am PT, 3:45am ET), but most of the best moon photo ops happen around moonrise and moonset - that will be around 5pm ET on Saturday and 7:50am ET on Sunday.
The Cold Moon won't actually reach the closest point to the Earth's surface until Monday morning, but Sunday night is when it will be at its most striking. The moon will appear about 7 percent bigger and 16 percent brighter than average. This is what makes the natural satellite appear bigger and brighter. This is because the previous two were around the time of a new moon, which isn't visible in the sky. The full moon is a gorgeous thing on its own and anytime people get excited to look up and revel in the wonders of the sky, it's a win for nature.
Though it will technically be the fourth supermoon of the year, none of the other three were visible as they came in the new moon phase, when the face of the moon shows black. That distance won't be bested again until 2034. But since the date didn't coincide with a full moon, it didn't qualify as a supermoon.
Still, don't sleep on the supermoon expected Sunday: It's the only one we'll see for all of 2017.
