November will bring us the greatest “Super-moon”


On the 14th of November, the moon will be closer to Earth than usual, making it look bigger and brighter, this “Super-moon” is considered the largest of this century. The phenomenon happens thanks to the elliptical motion of the moon.

The last time the moon was so close to Earth was in January 1948, as the next “Super-moon” after this appearance, will only be visible again in 2034.

The intensity of its glow will be over 30% and it will appear to have a larger size, with about 14% increase.

While moving around the Earth, the distance from the closest point the perigee, and most distant apogee, the Earth undergoes some changes, so the “Super-moon” happens when the perigee coincides with the occurrence of a full moon.
