Mark Your Calendars For Monday’s Supermoon
No, I didn't misspell "Superman". When next week kicks off, weather permitting, Ocean County could be in for a night time treat.
On November 14th, the Moon will be the closest it's been to Earth since 1948, and the closest it's going to be until 2034.
It's called a "supermoon" because it's relative closeness will make it appear, "up to 14 percent bigger and 30 percent brighter than an average full moon".
While we've already had some impressive supermoon encounters this year, Monday's will outshine them all.
Of course between now and then we have to hope for a clear night sky.
As of right now the long range forecast for the Shore is calling for partly cloudy conditions on Monday. So hopefully, even if we don't have a perfectly clear sky we'll at least have enough of a window to really appreciate the closest encounter we'll have to the Moon for another 18 years!
