Earlier this week most of us were treated to a supermoon, the brightest moon in 68 years. A supermoon is when a new moon or full moon coincides with the closet approach the moon makes to the earth on its elliptical orbit. It looked really close, but it was still 221,526 miles away from the center of the earth.
If you experienced cloudy skies or just didn’t look up mark your calendars for November 25, 2034. That’s the next time the supermoon phenomena will occur.
