A few fun facts:

  1. The November 14th full moon is the closest and brightest supermoon since January 26 1948 and this spectacular phenomenon will not occur again until November 25, 2034.
  2. The moon’s orbit is slightly elliptical so, when it passes close to Earth this is known as “perigee”, causing it to appear larger in diameter and shine 30% brighter.
  3. This moon may also be called the “Frosty Moon“.

Get out and remember to keep looking up!!!
