Watch for a Giant Full Moon November 14. it won’t be matched until 2034. So if you miss this one, mark your calendar for November 25 of that year. The moon only appears full from Earth when our planet is between the sun and the moon. But since the moon’s orbit has an elliptical shape, sometimes it is closer to Earth than other times. Astronomers call the closest-to-the-Earth moment the perigee. What makes November 14 special is that the moon “becomes full within about two hours of perigee—arguably making it an extra-super moon,” NASA explained.

If weather permits, you might get a closeup of the “Man in the Moon”, or at least as close as it gets…pg
