A “Super Moon” will occur this Monday (Nov 14th/16).It will be about 30,000 miles closer.To give some perspective,It’s about 25,000  miles around our equator.

Lets hope our weather will be clear enough to view this cosmic wonder? It won’t occur again till 2034.

      1. I saw it for a brief moment late last night, just before midnight…then the rain woke me up around 3 a.m.!

        Clear and sunny right now, so there is hope that I’ll get to see it again tonight…but the weather changes every five minutes around here.

      2. Yep – it was cloudy last night and the rain moved in…no sight of the moon at all! It’s been pouring all night and most of the day, and it is supposed to get below freezing in the next week. Frost and possibly snow on the beach!

    1. The term “Super Moon”is a relatively recent description.It basically means the moon is closer to us than normal. The moon revolves around the earth in a elliptical orbit. The moon is sometimes further away (Apogee) & sometimes closer (Perigee). So whenever the moon is close to us it’s a Super Moon.You’ll be around for the next orbit I’m sure.Each orbit is unique.
