Super Blue Moon

As a habitual stargazer it was an incredible treat early this morning to see this super blue moon, and it was so close. Unfortunately, being in the mid-Atlantic we were not able to see the partial eclipse that would give this satellite it’s blood red hue, but those of you on the west coast would have that opportunity!

Remember to keep looking up!!!!

November Supermoon

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!!!
