Supermoon visible Sunday night

Posted: Updated:

If you got a look at the Moon Sunday night, it might have seemed a little bigger than normal . That's because it was a "super moon."

The moon was full Sunday night, as it was making its closest approach to the Earth.

According to NASA - that combination made the moon appear about 14 percent larger than it normally does.

It was also a particularly bright supermoon because of the more intense sunlight that reflects off the Moon in the winter.

There's one more interesting little fact about this super moon. It can also be called a 'frost moon, a cold moon, or a moon before yule'! That's because it's the last full moon of the year.
