3 December – Will the skies be clear to see the Cold moon where you are? Check your local weather forecast.

What is a supermoon?

A supermoon occurs when a full moon coincides with the moon reaching perigee (the moon’s closest point of orbit to Earth). There are three supermoons in 2017 – in January, November and December – with the closest supermoon in December.

Why is it called a Cold Moon?

Full moon names often correspond to seasonal markers, and in the Northern Hemisphere December’s full moon occurs at a cold time of year – hence the name ‘Cold Moon’. This year, the Cold Moon will also be a supermoon.
