According to NASA, the biggest Supermoon of the century will light up the sky on November 14, 2016.
What makes a moon a Supermoon? It must be in the full moon phase, and the moon must be at its closest point to earth in its 27 day orbit cycle. When these occur together, the moon appears to be up to 14% bigger and up to 30% brighter as compared to its farthest point from earth.
A common misconception is that a Supermoon is rare, as we can see them several times a year. However, the upcoming Supermoon is special because it will be the closest full moon to date this century!
If you miss it, we hope you have a lot of patience! Because the moon won’t be this close to Earth again until November 25, 2034. They do say,”patience is a virtue.”
Weather permitting, you should be able to admire it’s full glory without any interferences.
