On Monday, the moon will be at perigee just after dusk in India.

The full moon appears that much larger in diameter and because it is larger, it shines 30 per cent more moonlight onto the Earth.

“The difference in distance from one night to the next will be very subtle. Any time after sunset should be fine. Since the moon is full, it’ll rise at nearly the same time as sunset. You don’t have to stay up all night to see it, unless you really want to!” said Noah Petro, deputy project scientist for NASA’s Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) mission.

This is actually the second of three supermoons in a row, so if the clouds do not cooperate for you this weekend, you will have another chance next month to see the last supermoon of 2016 on December 14.
