Supermoon #2


Higher in the sky now, and appearing a tad smaller than when it was rising, and more like its usual colour. So what really is a ‘supermoon’? This moon is not only the biggest and brightest supermoon of the year, but it is the closest supermoon since 26th January 1948, almost 69 years ago. I hope you got or get to see it. If not you will have to wait 18 years to see the next one on 25th November 2034.

  1. No luck here further west – it would have to super spectacular to get through the cloud cover. Oh well another 18 years is shorter than 19 years I suppose!

  2. Coastal US missed out– clouds. Another one 13/14 December 2016 (making geminids harder to see I imagine)? Thanks so much for visiting my blog!
