Saturday Night Supermoon
by

On Saturday night, the moon will be near its closest distance to earth of this year, getting as close as 221,802 miles. Since it is the closest full moon this year, this event is called a “Supermoon”, which appears 14 percent bigger than when the moon is at its furthest from earth.

Especially when the moon is near the horizon, it will look enormous tonight. Should be a fun thing to show your kids, in addition to being worth any astronomy geek’s time, at least for a minute or two.
