Here’s a couple of photos of the supermoon: one at midnight and one from 4 am.
Nasa says that this supermoon cycle last happened in 1948. That announcement touched my heart. 1948 was the year my parents got married. I wish they were still with us to enjoy the brilliant moon.
Nasa says this supermoon cycle won’t happen again until 2034; 18 years from now. I’ll be 74 then and I sure hope I’m healthy enough to be aware of it and maybe even remember that I shared about it on my blog way-back-when in 2016. Oh you know what would be cool, if I still have a blog then. I wonder if there will still be blogging… time will tell…
The news says that we should be able to continue to see the supermoon this evening. I may try to get some more photos. The world is so bright outside.
I wish you all many happy years of brilliant moons to come.
excerpts from article:
“…the full moon won’t come as close to Earth again until 2034.”
“The moon will turn full so quickly after it reaches the perigee on Nov. 14 that it should arguably be called an “extra-supermoon,” NASA officials said in the blog post. Modern astrologers first coined the term “supermoon.”
Largest supermoon since 1948 to light up night sky
