2016 to say 'sayonara' with three supermoons!- Watch

New Delhi: Yesterday, the world saw first of the three supermoons that are aligned to happen in the last three months of 2016. The full moon of October 16th, referred as Hunter's moon, was actually also a supermoon.

A Supermoon is a full Moon or a new Moon at its closest point to Earth, also called perigee.

Well, if by any chance you missed it, there are two more supermoons lined up for the month of November and December and they are much more exciting.

Why? Because November's supermoon is superspecial as that will be the closest full moon of the 21st century and full moon won't be this closer to the Earth until November 25, 2034.

On that day the whole globe will witness an extra-large and extra-bright full moon.
