The Closest Supermoon Full Moon Since 1948: How to See It Online

The Closest Supermoon Full Moon Since 1948: How to See It Online

November's full moon on Monday (Nov. 14) will be the biggest and brightest one since 1948, making it a great time to get outside and marvel at the lunar sight for stargazers around the world. But if it happens to be cloudy in your area, don't despair. You can still watch the so-called "supermoon" online in several live webcasts, starting tonight (Nov. 13).

 The Full Beaver Moon of November is called the supermoon because the full phase is taking place at the moon's closest point in its orbit around the Earth, also called the perigee. NASA says the moon will appear slightly larger than a typical full moon, at about 15 percent larger. The moon won't look this large again until 2034.
