If you missed Sunday’s supermoon, you still have a chance on Jan. 1 and a third time on Jan. 31.
NASA released a video explaining what is a supermoon (above).
Here are photos of the Dec. 3 supermoon rising around the world.
The third supermoon on Jan. 31 will be something even more special, according to NASA.

“The Jan. 31 supermoon will feature a total lunar eclipse, with totality viewable from western North America across the pacific to Eastern Asia.. The moon’s orbit around our planet is tilted so it usually falls above or below the shadow of the earth. About twice each year, a full moon lines up perfectly with the earth and sun such that earth’s shadow totally blocks the sun’s light, which would normally reflect off the moon.”
The lunar eclipse on Jan. 31 will be visible during moonset. That supermoon will also be the second full moon of the month, making it a “super blue moon.”
