Record Breaking Super Moon

book cover image: the moon and how to observe it

While I generally blog about books that we have in the collection or an upcoming program I had to change tactics because we have the chance to see a record-breaking supermoon - the biggest in nearly 70 years.  On November 14, 2016 the moon will be the closest to the Earth that it has been since January 1948.   It will appear in the sky up to 14 percent bigger and 30 percent brighter.  If you can, get somewhere nice and dark, away from the lights of the city.    You will be viewing what is known in  some circles as a perigee-syzygy.   Syzygy - referring to the line up of the Earth, Moon & Sun and Perigee -the side of the Moon facing the Earth for a perigee-syzygy or as we would say a super moon.  Enjoy.
