Even closer than Sunday night's supermoon was the one that occurred on November 14, 2016, and that was the closest supermoon since January 26, 1948, and will not be surpassed until November 25, 2034.

December's full moon, traditionally known as the Cold Moon, appears bigger and brighter in the sky as it sits closer than average to Earth.

During a supermoon, technically called a 'perigee syzygy, ' the moon can appear up to 30% brighter than usual.

. Stargazers, astronomers and curious sky-watchers get a chance to witness the first and only full moon supermoon of 2017. The Dec. 3 full moon will be the first of three consecutive supermoons.

The moon's orbit around the Earth is elliptical.
