May God shower his holiest birthday wishes, Pope FRANCIS.

It's Pope Francis birthday and you may send him email greetings in multiple languages. But you won't catch the pontiff voicing any birthday wishes ahead of the big day: "In my homeland, voicing wishes early brings bad luck and those who voice wishes early are a jinx."

Supermoon

Attraction

Tonight we have the opportunity to see the last, unique and complete supermoon of 2017.

The moon shines 16% brighter than normal and appears 7% larger than its usual size.
The supermoon will be the first in a series of three consecutive supermoons, the next two will be in January.

The question then is when is the best time to see the supermoon? Most astronomers suggest seeing the supermoon just after the sun goes down and the moon appears, as well as minutes before the sun appears the next morning.
