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

The first supermoon of the year was visible on January 12, and the second was on November 3.

In most of the northern hemisphere, the December Supermoon will be dubbed a "Full Cold Moon" due to the season we're in.

The supermoon may appear up to 14 percent larger and 30 percent brighter than usual.

A supermoon is when a full moon coincides with the moon's perigee, or the point in its orbit when closest to Earth.

The best time to view the supermoon is right after sunset when the so-called "moon illusion" makes the already super-sized moon appear even bigger. That distance won't be bested again until 2034.

This Sunday is your chance to get up close and personal with the Moon. The best times to see it will be just after moonrise and just before moonset as the moon appears even larger next to the horizon.

The exact moment of the full moon is the morning of December 3 at 10:46 a.m. ET, (9:46 a.m. CT, 8:46 a.m. MT, and 6:46 a.m. PT), Space.com said.

Now, the sky will light up at exactly 6.06 pm on Sunday, December 3rd, providing a dazzling display overhead. According to University of Arizona professor Gurtina Besla, there's also a peak viewing time at 3:45 a.m. ET on Monday, Dec. 4.

The distance between the moon and Earth constantly changes.

The next full moon you're going to see will be absolutely extraordinary.

. If you choose to watch it live, check what local time you should tune in here. This lunar event is a little more special than October 2017's Harvest Moon, namely because of its size and how visible it will be. The moon will appear about 7 percent bigger and 16 percent brighter than average.
