Are you excited to witness the supermoon tomorrow? Know the time it will appear and witness together with family and friends.
According to GMA News:
If you're supermoon-gazing on the night of November 14, Monday, make sure you come out of your house at the right time the moon will be at its closest point while orbiting Earth.
In an advisory from state weather bureau PAGASA, the moon will perigree at exactly 7:21 p.m., almost two hours and 31 minutes before going full moon, which will be at exactly 9:52 p.m.
"This means we’ll be seeing a closer and larger apparent diameter moon this year – a supermoon!" PAGASA said.
People are encouraged to witness the supermoon because the next even will happen after 18 years or not until 2034.
The last supermoon happened 68 years ago or in January 26, 1948.
PAGASA said during the event, the moon will be as much as 14 percent bigger and 30 percent brighter.
The weather bureau, however, the supermoon's brightness may be "easily masked by clouds or the competing glare of urban lights."
PAGASA said supermoon called in astronomy as Perigee Full Moon, was coined by Richard Nole. He defined supermoon as “a new or full moon that occurs when the moon is within 90 percent of its closest approach to Earth in a given orbit.”
