I Can’t Wait For Super Moon Tonight

When I went out from the house this dawn at 2 in the morning, I thought the one I saw is the Super Moon but I just found out that it’s not. According to Facebook the Super Moon can be sighted tonight. We must grab this rare opportunity because the next Super Moon can be seen again for another 18 years. Thus, if you want to witness how bright and how big this Super Moon is, you must not slip this chance away. And I can’t wait to witness for Super Moon tonight, I am a moon lover, I find the moon very amazing and stunning, I know that they are mostly comes in the same size and the same image but I always find myself taking a picture of it.

So why the NASA did named the Moon tonight the Super Moon?

It is because it would be extra big and extra bright. This Super Moon is the closest full moon to earth and this was last seen on 1948.

According to NASA:

The moon’s orbit around the Earth is slightly elliptical, so sometimes the moon is closer and sometimes it’s farther away. When the moon is full as it makes its closest pass to Earth it is known as a supermoon. At perigree—the point at which the moon is closest to Earth—the moon can be as much as 14 percent closer to Earth than at apogee, when the moon is farthest from our planet. The full moon appears that much larger in diameter and 30 percent brighter. The biggest and brightest moon for observers in the United States will be on Monday morning just before dawn.

Witness this very rare event, remember you won’t see another Super Moon until 2034.
