Supermoon Could be Seen with Naked Eyes Last Night

TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - The Meteorology, Climatology and Geophysics Agency (BMKG) Padang Panjang, West Sumatra, said that a supermoon event occurred last night on Sunday, December 3. Furthermore, the moon was at its closest distance with the Earth at 357.49 kilometers at 3:45. A full moon at the distance of less than 360,000 from the Earth is categorized as a supermoon, also known as a pedigree moon.

Technically, supermoons have occurred three times this year. Yesterday was the only occasion when people could see it with their naked eyes because the other two took place during the new moon phase.
