Supermoon, the biggest so far in 21st century, is happening tonight

Skywatchers will be able to gaze upon the biggest and brightest “supermoon” in almost 69 years tonight, Monday, November 14.

According to state weather bureau PAGASA, the moon will reach perigee –moon’s closest point as it orbits Earth- tonight at 07:21 p.m.(Manila time), almost 2 hours 31 minutes before going full moon at 09:52 PM.

This will be the closest perigee since the January 26, 1948 and the moon won’t be seen this close to Earth again until November 26, 2034.

NASA said the moon will appear 14% larger and 30% brighter than usual full moon. TNF
