It’s large, it’s bright, it’s the SUPERMOON! Largest full moon of 2013 this weekend!
It’s the closest full moon of the year.
And it’s the largest full moon of the year.
It’s the supermoon.
Yes, I said SUPERMOON.
Just look out your window tonight and you’ll see it – a huge beautiful full moon hanging low in the sky tonight – and if you have not had a chance to see it yet, you’re not too late… they say it’s at its best tonight, however it’s still going to be spectacular tomorrow night too! They say whatever country you’re in, you should be able to see it.
During this weekend’s SUPERMOON, the moon will look about 12% bigger than it will look next month, and possibly as much as 30% brighter too. And it is bright. Don’t miss it – it is well worth the hype!
If you’re somewhere where you’re unable to look up at the moon and see it, there will be a free webcast of the event – it will be held on Sunday June 23, 9 p.m. EDT (0100 June 24 GMT) and available on space.com (we’ll post the video here once they have it up).
Supermoons only happen once a year – don’t miss this one! 🙂
Update: If you didnt have a chance to watch it live, here is the video from the Slooh Space Camera that was filmed live as the Supermoon was rising on June 23. It’s a long video with alot of background information, but live feeds (from June 23) do come in sporadically. You’ll see in the lower right it says “Live from the Canary Islands”…at first I thought it was a still image, but it is acutally a video feed!
