Residents get a glimpse of the 'supermoon' Sunday night

According to National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), the full moon will also occur near the moon's arrival at perigee on January 1 and January 31. As a result, the moon appears to be up to 14 percent larger and 30 percent brighter during a supermoon. At its perigee, the moon will be just 222,135 miles from Earth, almost 16,000 miles closer than it normally is throughout the year, according to NASA. When two full moons occur in the same month, the second is sometimes called a blue moon or, in this case, a super blue moon. There are times, then, that the moon is particularly close to the Earth. "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". Hence, for those in the Northern hemisphere, it is a cold supermoon.

The moon will be visible to see on Sunday after 5 p.m. when it begins to rise, however, it won't officially be a Supermoon until it is at its closest point to Earth, which will be at approximately 4 a.m. on Monday. "As the moon goes round the Earth, its distance from the Earth keeps changing", he said.

December's supermoon can best be seen Saturday night.

CT residents will have their eyes peeled to the sky Sunday night as the "supermoon" makes its only appearance in 2017.

If you aren't able to observe this weekend's supermoon, don't worry: The new year kicks off with two supermoons straight from the gate.

Or, you know-you could just look out your window.

A Blue Moon can be a supermoon, just like any other full moon. Even more so if it's a supermoon.

"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".

"The supermoon gets headlines because the moon's a little bigger and a little brighter, but people get frustrated that they can't always tell the difference".
