If you look at the sky on November 14th, you will see a larger, brighter full moon. The satellite will be closer to Earth, offering an unprecedented spectacle in almost 70 years.
The observers will think have that the moon is huge,
declared Pascal Descamps, from the Paris Observatory.
There will be a “supermoon” due to two astronomical phenomena: the full moon phase will almost coincide with the time when the orbiting satellite is as close to the Earth as possible. That’s why it will look bigger and brighter than usual. At dusk, it will be seen from all over the world.
On November 14th, the Moon will only be 356,509 km from Earth (the average distance is 384,400 km). You will have to wait until November 25th, 2034 so the Moon is closer to us again.
For once, everyone can enjoy the show, even those who go to bed early. You just need to look at the sky when it appears.
In addition, as the Earth / Moon system is approaching to the time of year that it will be closer to the Sun, the Moon will receive more sunlight than usual, which will also increase its apparent brightness, as explained by the Irish Astronomical Association (IAA).
If weather conditions allow it, it can be seen from everywhere. The show will be for everyone and observable with the naked eye, but with binoculars or a telescope, you can scrutinize the lunar surface.
