The Moon Is Going To Be Amazing This Weekend

This weekend, you might want to take a moment to look up at what promises to be a spectacular supermoon.

Added bonus: It’s also a hunter’s moon. « That’s because in other months, the moon rises about 50 minutes later each day, while the October moon rises just 30 minutes later, » National Geographic explain.  « That offers more light overall during a 24-hour day, which came in handy for traditional hunters. »

Viewing will be at its best on Sunday, when the moon is both full and « at its closest point to our planet as it orbits Earth, » according to NASA. National Geographic advises that the best time to see it is as it rises on Sunday evening.
