When the Moon hits your eye.....

Get ready for the Moon to hit your eye like a big pizza pie on Sunday, November 13th. That night, skywatchers around the planet will witness the closest, brightest, and biggest full Moon since January 26, 1948 the year the Cleveland Indians last won the World Series and the 200-inch Hale telescope on Mount Palomar was dedicated.

We'll all be crossing our fingers for clear skies, since the next such Moon won't occur until November 25, 2034. These bright, close full Moons are popularly called "supermoons," a wonderful description that makes people sit up and take notice. Isaac

Thanks, Isaac. Just hope the smoke from the mountain fires are gone by then; right now it' hazy all over and thicker in the northern suburbs.

Issac,
Is it Saturday to Sunday or Sunday to Monday night? Both kind of qualify for this special night.

Here's how to see the biggest supermoon since 1948


When and where to see?
According to EarthSky.org, the moon will turn precisely full on November 14 at 1:52 p.m. UTC, or 8:52 a.m. ET.
For viewers in eastern North America and Europe, the best view will likely be on the night of November 13, or the following night.

Several shots of the Super Moon.
#1 is Moon Rise...reddish due to Earth's atmosphere.
#2 is a little later as moon starts to get higher..
#3 after its clear of the atmosphere.
#4 A cropped shot to show that if you look closely, you can see the mountains and valleys silhouetted against the black sky. They are small looking because these shots were taken with my 400mm lens and not through my telescope.
Enjoy because it will be a long time before another Super Moon of this magnitude is visible. Doubt that I'll be here for that one.... Isaac
