There's Another Supermoon Set To Rise Over Australia TONIGHT
If you missed out on viewing the most recent supermoon phenomenon, you could be in luck tonight. The supermoon is set to strike again!
Tonight's the night when the last of three consecutive supermoons of 2016 is due to make a spectacular appearance.

The December full moon will coincide with a Geminid Meteor Shower, the annual event that sends a flurry of shooting stars across the sky. The brightness of the moon, however, is expected to largely "wipe out the view" of the meteor shower, according to NASA.
Last month's supermoon left many stargazers disappointed when clouds obscured the event.
We're crossing our fingers and toes that this doesn't happen again tonight. However, things don't look promising for South Australians and Victorians.
According to Weatherzone, Melbourne and Adelaide will have to contend with some cloud cover at sunset.
Tonight's conditions are forecast to be mostly clear in Sydney, Brisbane and Perth.
