November Super Moon

It’s a bird, it’s a plane – it’s a Super Moon, coming to you, courtesy of nature! The super moon will appear on Monday, November 14th, 2016, and it’s billed to be spectacular. Let’s hope for clear skies!

A supermoon happens when the moon travels closer to earth than normal, and can be as much as 14% bigger and 30% brighter than an regular full moon.

The full moon of November 14th will be the closest full moon to date in the 21st century. According to a statement by NASA, the full moon won’t come this close to Earth again until November 25th, 2034 -that’s 18 years from now!

Note that November’s super moon will be waning on the evening of the 14th, so you should keep your eyes out on the evening of the 13th too. According to the website,  the moon will look plenty full and bright all night long on both nights: November 13th and 14th.

Happy moon-gazing!
