We won't actually see the moon when it's at its "fullest" because it will be below the horizon.
If you miss this one, however, don't fret: The first two full moons of 2018 will be supermoons. The moon will be closest to the earth in the first hours of the next morning, although it will be a little less full. Some supermoons can appear about 14 percent fuller than regular full moons.
This Sunday will make selenographists the world over very happy, as a bigger and brighter moon is set to be visible as it moves closer towards Earth. That's because the Earth is closer to the sun, and the sun's gravity tugs the moon closer to the Earth.
Unlike the total solar eclipse, there are no risks of going blind if you stare directly into the moonlight, which is technically a reflection of the sun's light. Specially, NASA describes the occurrence as a new or full moon that occurs when the moon is within 90% of its closest approach to Earth in a given orbit. The moon will reach its perigee when it will be at a distance of 222,135 miles (357,492 kilometers) from earth on December 4 at 3:45 a.m. EST (0845 GMT, 2.15 IST). It just won't be a full moon.
Also, look for the supermoon when it's near the horizon during moonrise/moonset.
But for those who can't wake up that early, the moon will still look bigger - and brighter - throughout the night. This is also why both times are the best for watching the supermoon. And while 7 percent bigger and 16 percent brighter than the average full moon may not sound that impressive, compared to a micromoon (when the full moon is at the farther end of its reach), a supermoon appears even more bodacious.
If you're using a DSLR, NASA's senior photographer Bill Ingalls recommends that you use the daylight white balance to adjust for the sunlight being reflected off the moon.
"Tap the screen and hold your finger on the object (in this case, the moon) to lock the focus".
