Dont Miss This: Record-Breaking Supermoon To Appear November 14th

Moon gazers, get ready - the supermoon is coming, and it's going to be an opportunity you won't get again for 17 years.

The next full moon is going to be on November 14, and you might want to set an alarm to get out there at moon rise and watch it. If you've got binoculars or a telescope, all the better. Make sure you've got a great view of the eastern horizon and get the camera ready, too!

This could very likely be the most amazing view of the harvest moon you'll see in your lifetime. According to NASA, 'supermoon' occurs when the moon is at its closest point to the Earth. Since the moon is on an elliptical orbit, it rarely passes this close during a full moon.

Any moon within 90% of its closest point to Earth is a 'supermoon,' so you've probably seen similar events before. Last month, in fact, there was a supermoon. But this month, the moon is at a peak we haven't seen in 70 years, and won't see again until 2034. The result is the full moon at its peak size: 14 percent bigger and 30 percent brighter than the average full moon.

It’s a ‘super’ supermoon, and sure to be a spectacular sight.
