Super Moon Time November 14 2016 USA

This November 14, we will have to opportunity to observe a very interesting astronomical event.

The "supermoon" occurs when a full moon coincides with the closest point between the earth and our natural satellite, making it appear bigger and brighter than usual.

Although this is quite a common phenomena (in fact there will be 3 such events in 2016, one already occurred in October and one more to come on December 13), what sets the one on November 14 apart is that it will be the brightest since 1948.

It can be viewed best in places where the horizon is visible and in an area with low light pollution and using binoculars.
