The biggest in 68 years
November 13, 2016
Fred Pflughoft got this picture of the supermoon rising over the Wind River Mountains on Sunday, Nov. 13th. If youíre younger than 68 you have never witnessed this record-breaking supermoon in your lifetime. The supermoon will reach its peak at 8:52 am EST on the morning of Monday, November 14th. At that time, the moon will be the closest it has been to Earth since 1948. It will appear 14 percent bigger and 30 percent brighter than the average monthly full moon. If you donít get a chance to see it tomorrow morning, the supermoon will appear full to the casual observer a day before and after the peak.
