Check out the only supermoon of 2017 this weekend

Oh look a full
The full supermoon won't technically hit the United States until Monday morning (12:45am PT, 3:45am ET), but most of the best moon photo ops happen around moonrise and moonset - that will be around 5pm ET on Saturday and 7:50am ET on Sunday.
The perigee for this supermoon isn't the closest of the year; that happened on May 25, when the moon was 221,958 miles away from Earth.
A supermoon usually occurs when the moon is closest to the Earth in its orbit and this time sky gazers will see the moon at approximately 16,500 miles (26,500 km) closer than usual.
Considering that a full moon can be covered with a fingernail, even a 7% larger moon may not look that much bigger.
Now there will always be the writers who, dripping with too-cool-for-school ennui, will say, "oh look, a full moon" as they explain that it's not a big deal and that the media is just setting people up for disappointment. The moon will set at 6:10 am, half an hour after sunrise takes place at 5:41 am.
"The moon's orbit is not a ideal circle".
For everyone waiting to catch a glimpse of the last supermoon of 2017, taking pictures to preserve the moment can be easy. That distance won't be bested again until 2034.
There are plenty of places around the US where you can enjoy the Supermoon as long as the sky is clear, even if just for a minute. Then adjust the exposure slider that appears next to your finger to get the right balance of light for your shot.
"Often I find when the moon is near the horizon I have a better chance of incorporating it with a landmark or person, but there are no rules and sometimes a tall object such as the Washington Monument here in D.C. can be used when the moon is at a very high angle".
