    Question The last time to catch a supermoon is coming..

    The last time to catch a supermoon is coming..

    The last time in the year to catch a supermoon, the biggest and brightest full moons, begins soon. The astronomical event started Wednesday, but isn't expected to be visible to the naked eye until 9:36 p.m. EDT Thursday and will stay in that phase until Saturday morning, according to NASA. It is the fourth and final supermoon of the year.

    What is a supermoon? A supermoon is a full moon that is within 90% of its closest point, or perigee, to Earth in its orbit. While closer, that perigee is still about 226,000 miles from Earth. In general, supermoons appear 17% bigger and 30% brighter than when the moon is at its farthest point away from Earth, NASA says. The supermoon starting Thursday was also called the Sturgeon Moon named after a large fish by the Algonquin Native American tribe, in what is currently the northeastern U.S. It is also known as the Green Corn Moon, according to NASA.

    It was beautiful around 4:30 this morning. We had some clouds moving through, which of course added to the general mood.

    It didn't look 'huge' just astounding clear and bright. (Knoxville TN)

    Thanks. I'll check it out tonight.
    Whoever criticizes capitalism, while approving immigration, whose working class is its first victim, had better shut up. Whoever criticizes immigration, while remaining silent about capitalism, should do the same.
