This year, scientists claim that November will surprise use with the biggest moon ever displayed in years. NASA explained that the full moon which is soon to rise this month is the closest moon this year. What is more, astronomers claimed that studies have shown November’s biggest moon will represent the closest full moon in the last 68 years. Back in 1948, the moon was situated in its closest position on our planet.
- Astrologers are waiting for the biggest moon meant to rise this month.
- The spectacular event will happen again in 2034.
NASA’s specialists had also asserted that the next time when the moon will be displayed with such magnificence, it would be on November 25, 2034. If you do not want to wait 18 more years, you should prepare yourself to be amazed by such a beautiful event which will never be forgotten.
The spectacular event is bound to take place on November 13, the biggest moon being exhibited in the night sky until November 14. The moon will shine bright like a massive Firefly, rising in the east and then climbing higher and higher at midnight. In the end, it will set in the west.
Space.com reported that the exact moment when the moon will be full is November 14 at 8:52 a.m. EST. That will be 7:52 a.m. CST, 5:52 A.M. PST and 6:52 a.m. MST. The moon will reach its closest spot to our planet known as perihelion within 90 minutes. This kind of event occurs only when the moon is closer to Terra than it naturally is.
What is more, the phenomenon is more perceptible when the closeness to Earth and the full moon happen at the same time. This should be a splendid view. There are not lots of occasions when we can witness such a fantastic event. Based on the declarations from a press release, NASA argued that the Moon will be 30% brighter and 14% bigger than it is typically perceived to be.
Back in 1979, Richard Nolle, an astrologer, was the first one to use the term supermoon. He applied the term to refer to the occurrence when a full moon is situated in its closest spot near our planet. Based on the Old Farmer’s Almanac, the biggest moon in November was called the beaver moon. The reason for this is that the Algonquin tribes and the colonists set traps for beavers, to provide a fur supply for winter.
