The brightest and the largest supermoon of the 21st century will be observed on November 14. The proximity between the earth and moon will be the maximum on this day. Such a combination would not re-occur until 2034.
November 14 Supermoon to be the Brightest and largest in 21st century
The last biggest moon was witnessed in the year 1948 and since then it didn’t occur up until in 2016. As per the reports by NASA, 2016 will record three supermoons, one of which has already occurred in October. The upcoming supermoon will be seen on November 14 and then again on December 14.
“The next supermoon of this magnitude will happen after 18 years on November 25 2034. On November 14, 2016, the moon will appear up to 14 percent bigger and 30 percent average than the normal moon.”
The orbit of the moon is oval in shape, that brings the moon closer to earth at one point in time in its orbit. On November 14, the moon will be seen 14 percent larger than usual.
It can be best viewed from the place where the surroundings aren’t well lighted up, making the moon more visible. Also, you will be able to enjoy an even better view from tall skyscrapers.
