First and Last Supermoon of 2017 is Happening this Sunday

According to, the first and last Supermoon of 2017 will be appearing this Sunday.

“The moon becomes totally full at 10:47 a.m. EST (1547 GMT) on Sunday (Dec. 3). It will officially reach perigee the next day (Dec. 4) at 3:45 a.m. EST (0845 GMT), when it is 222,135 miles (357,492 kilometers) away from Earth,” the news-site reported.

Malaysia is 13 hours ahead of Eastern Standard Time (EST) which means we’ll be able to view the Supermoon rising and growing from 11.47pm this Sunday night (Dec 3) until well into the morning. We might miss the Supermoon’s perigee (point in orbit closest to the earth) ’cause it’d be Monday evening, but there’s a chance we might be able to see a significantly bigger moon that night as well.

So two nights of full moon… What are you gonna do?
