The supermoon occurs in the northern hemisphere in the winter when the Earth is close to the sun, and as a result, the sun’s gravity pushes the moon closer to the Earth, making it appear larger than usual.
The phenomenon will appear in Africa, Australia, Europe, and Asia including Egypt and the Arab World.
The only total lunar eclipse until 2021 will take place on Monday, January 21 featuring a super blood moon.
On Wednesday there will be a once in a lifetime chance to capture the super blue blood moon, and Egypt Today gathered six spots in Egypt to witness the event.
The last Supermoon of 2017 will rise on Sunday, December 3.
