The Supermoon is dawning upon us. TONIGHT, around 9pm-10pm to be exact!

What is a Supermoon?

Have you ever looked up at the night sky and realised that

1. it’s a full moon and
2. it looks like the moon is SO CLOSE you could almost touch it??

That’s a supermoon.

A supermoon is basically the impressive sight that happens when a full moon is closest to Earth.

Here’s a little scientific fact for you: The moon orbits Earth in an oval shape. So sometimes, it comes closer to us than at other times. The moon appears 30 per cent brighter and 14 per cent bigger.

TONIGHT, Monday, November 14th, the supermoon will be the BIGGEST and BRIGHTEST its ever been in 70 years. So, it’s definitely one to look out for!

The “undeniably beautiful” astronomical event will not come again until November 25, 2034, Nasa said.

That’s 18 years away. So, if you miss it…. It’s only a 18 year wait for the next one….

Here’s a little clip from NASA to explain it further!

So make a note of it, again, it’s TONIGHT. You won’t need to do much, just step out of your house and look up! You won’t regret it!
