The moon lighted up the sky, appearing 14 per cent bigger and 30 per cent brighter than usual today after 69 years.
According to NASA, the so-called ‘supermoon’ will be the closest full moon to earth since 1948, and it won’t be as close again until 2034.
The time mentioned for this magnificent view is 8:52 AM EST by NASA, however the glimpse can be enjoyed Monday evening too.
In 2016, we’ll get a total of three supermoons: one that passed on October 16, the second on Monday and the third on December 16.
But what makes Monday’s supermoon so special is that it’s the closest supermoon since January 26, 1948. It becomes full about two hours before perigee, at which time the moon will be roughly 356,509 kilometres from Earth.What makes Monday’s supermoon so special is that it’s the closest supermoon since January 26, 1948.
