What's a Supermoon?

Easy, it's a moon that is so close to Earth that it appears bigger in the sky.

So try to catch the moon on the nights of November 13 and 14!

On Nov 14, 2016  the full moon will align with its perihelion. Astronomers call that a perigee full moon, or when they are feeling a bit silly they call it perigee-syzygy.

This will make for the largest "Supermoon" for a looooong time. How long?

It’s the closest supermoon since 1948 and the moon won’t come this close again until 2034.
