So there’s going to be an extremely rare supermoon tonight, November 14 and according to state weather agency PAGASA, the weather so far is cooperating to let us witness this unique astronomical spectacle.
PAGASA noted that Monday night’s supermoon will be extra special due to the alignment of the heavenly bodies, the Inquirer reports.
“This supermoon is one of the closest and biggest in 68 years and it won’t happen again until 2034.”
It added that the supermoon will be at its closest point to the planet at 7:21 p.m. and will become a full moon at 9:52 p.m.
For the uninitiated, a supermoon is basically a full moon that occurs when the moon is at its closest point to Earth.
We technically get a supermoon every year and a couple of months but this year is a treat since we have, not two but three consecutive supermoons lined up from October to December.
Among the three, tonight’s supermoon happens gets the closest proximity to Earth in nearly seven decades so make sure you don’t miss this once in a lifetime event.
