Super moon on the horizon

0

MONDAY November 14 marks a special day for moon enthusiasts as it will be the first time since 1948 in which the moon will be at its closest to the Earth.

This fact means that when the sun sets this afternoon, a much larger than normal moon will be visible all over the globe. At approximately 00:00 the moon will be 14 per cent larger than we normally see it, as well as being 30 per cent brighter.

This could be the largest that some see it in their whole lifetime, as the next time the moon will be this close to the Earth will be in the year 2034.
