Supermoon

 

Tonight’s Supermoon is going to be the biggest Supermoon in nearly 70 years!  This month’s will be especially impressive.  You won’t want to miss it. The weather is also clear.

It will appear very large because the moon is closest to the earth.   It will appear 14% larger and 30% brighter than usual. It will take place at 1:52 pm UTC on November 14, 2016.

There are three Supermoons in 2016. The first Supermoon took place on October 16th of this year.  Today is the second and the largest one and the next will take place on December 14, 2016.

 

 

 

The best time to view the Supermoon is when it is coming up on the horizon.  It will appear unnaturally large as you look at it.  The next time it will be this close will be November 2034.
