November 14-2016 Supermoon

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.”

  1. We saw it last night; it was beautiful! We have cloudy skies today with rain on the way, so I doubt we’ll get to see it tonight.
    Sweet that the last time there was a moon this big was the year your parents were married. I wonder if news spread about it then? It probably wasn’t called a Super Moon!

    • Thanks Dianna
      I’m glad you all got to see the supermoon last night. I’m envious of your rain. We need some so desperately.
      I wondered about that too, I wondered if they thought the moon was extra brighter of if they paid much a mind to it at all.
      Have a pleasant day and enjoy that rain. 🙂

    • Hi Jane
      Welcome to my blog.
      Isn’t it something to think of decades that pass between some of the events in space? Space sure is a curious place.
      Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving me a happy comment.
      I hope you’ll visit again sometime.
      🙂
