The Moon Hasn’t Been This Close to Earth in Nearly 70 Years and You Won’t Want to Miss It!

Since the dawn of humans, the moon has been mysterious and is responsible for ocean levels and tides, our mood, and even affects how some plants grow. It’s also amazing to think that without it, it would take only 6-8 hours instead of 24 hours for the earth to rotate once so days would be MUCH shorter. The moon creates tidal friction which makes earth rotate 3 to 4 times slower.

On November 14th, 2016, the moon will be the closest to earth it has ever been since January 1948. The November supermoon is expected to be 14% bigger and 30% brighter than an average full moon.

November 14th Supermoon expected to be a spectacular sight…

November 14th Supermoon Won't Happen Again Until the Year 2034

“The full moon of November 14 is not only the closest full moon of 2016, but also the closest full moon to date in the 21st century,” says NASA. “The full moon won’t come this close to Earth again until November 25, 2034.”
