Supermoon -largest since 1948
The recent super-
moon occurred
on Nov 14th and
appeared as a
huge white orb
when it first snuck out from behind some cloud
cover.
As the darkness descended and the moon took
to its usual place high overhead, according to
recorded data, it was 7% bigger than an average
full moon.
January 26th, 1948 was the last time we saw a
moon this close and the next one will occur
November of 2034, eighteen years from now.
