I had the privileged of viewing the supermoon last night in its first night in orbit. If you didn’t have a chance you can view it tonight. It will appear 14 per cent bigger and 30 per cent brighter than usual. The event is the result of the moon coming closer to Earth than it has done for 69 years. It may look unusually large, but it is just closer to earth, about 30,000 miles than it typically is. Viewing it any time after sunset should be fine.
Rather than seeing the supermoon at home, stargazers should consider going out to watch it in a place where they can actually notice a difference. The best way to see a supermoon is an area with little pollution and little to no artificial light. Consider watching the supermoon from a roof with a view of the city. To see the moon rise over skyscrapers will make it appear larger in the night sky. Looking at the sky on an east facing beach can put the moon in perspective without the distraction of city life.
The next time anyone will be able to see a supermoon like the one that is expected to appear on Monday is on Nov. 25, 2034. In anticipation of the full moon I viewed last night, I did a tarot spread I found online at Inner Goddess Tarot.
