The biggest and brightest “supermoon” of the 21st century is coming
The biggest, brightest supermoon to ever grace the skies in the 21st century is coming November 14. Take it all in, because a supermoon like this won’t come around again until 2034.
A supermoon happens when there is a full moon on the same days it’s in perigee, which is the closest point in the moon’s orbit to Earth.

Supermoons can be 14 percent bigger and 30 percent brighter than a regular moon, according to NASA.
For sky gazers in North America, the best views will start early morning on November 14, since the moon will turn full by 8:52 am ET, according to NASA.
