The Largest Super Moon In 70 Years Is About To Rise and Break All The Records.

  • 8246

Moon and star gazers everywhere are in for a special treat this month, as a very rare and beautiful supermoon will rise in the sky on the evening of Monday November 14th. This will be a lunar event that’s almost 70 years in the making and not since January 25, 1948 has a full moon been this close to Earth!
To be considered a supermoon the location, timing, and phase of the moon must all come together at certain points. First, the moon must be in either a visible and illuminated full moon phase, or a dark and entirely invisible new moon phase. Next, the moon’s orbit has to bring it around to the one point where it comes the closest to the Earth. Finally, these two factors must occur at the same time and coincide with one another in order for the moon to be called a supermoon.
