November’s Supermoon

The moon is full on Monday morning, November 14. And it’s also a supermoon! Yes, the moon is exactly full just about 90 minutes after it reached perigee (the point in the Moon’s orbit where it is closest to Earth). As a result, it is the closest (and largest) supermoon since January 1948. So, skies permitting, take a look on the night of November 13-14 (Sunday night or, even better, before dawn on Monday). While you’re out there, you might like to make a photo.
