November Supermoon

Monday, November 14, our moon will be closer to the earth than it has been since 1948. The best time to see this phenomenon is just before sunrise Monday morning 6:22 AM EST. This year will mark three such supermoons with the first being last month, October 16, and next month December 14. However, this moon, Monday, will be the closest the moon will be to the earth, making it look larger than either moon from October and December. The reason the moon will appear so large is because of its elliptical orbit, which brings the moon closer than at other times. During this time we will also have 30% more moonlight than at other times. The next time this phenomenon occurs will be in 2034. So if you miss it now, you'll have another chance in 18 years. For some of us, this will be our only chance to see such a moon. Now the only thing that needs to happen is clear skies. From my experience with such phenomenon's lately, there had been cloudy skies making it impossible to see meteor showers, large moons, or anything else the heavens are showing us that is extraordinary. I hope you will be able to see it. Reportedly, you should be able to see it both Sunday night and Monday night, but the best will be just before sunrise Monday morning. I wish you all clear skies so you can see this wonderful event. Thanks for reading.

That would be great. I just charged my camera battery, so I should be able to get some nice pictures, if I remember and it's clear.

I'm going to try and remember to look for it. I am usually up before sunrise so maybe I can catch it Monday morning.

@just4him Unfortunately, the moon isn't within my view this morning and it's too early and cold to go downstairs and try to find it

@simone10 I was prepared to go find it at 3:30 AM. When I went outside, it was warmer than I expected and it was just overhead so I got some good pictures of it.

I'm really looking forward to it @just4him and I hope our skies are clear too. As you say, I won't be around in 2034; that's for sure.

Now that I know where to look for it, I hope I remember to look for it. I would be able to see it right out my bedroom window. I might need to set my alarm to be able to see it.

@just4him I looked at it at 11pm and then again at 5:15 am. They looked similar. The thing that stood out most to me was the blinding light from the moon.

@nanette64 I took pictures of them and I can easily see from the pictures that the one I took at 3:30 this morning was larger than the one at 9 last night.

Thank you for the information. I was not there in 1948, and I would not bet that I will be there in 2034, so I will try to not miss this "Supermoon", it will be a good occasion to take some photos.

@LadyDuck I'm sorry. I was able to take some pictures at 3:30 this morning. If you look at the one on the comment for DiannN, this one is just a little larger.

@DianneN I haven't looked. I'll try and see if I can see it. I found it out my east facing bedroom window. This is the best shot I have of it for now.

I noticed that the moon was so close and went to BIng and read up on what you have just wrote. Interesting that it hasn't been this close to the Earth since before I was born.
