The Supermoon November 14th is a Chance of a Lifetime


November 14 is right around the corner so you have time to plan where you and your friends will gather to watch this once in a lifetime event. Not only will that night bring us the brightest supermoon of 2016, but also the closest one to earth in 68 years. You won't see another moon like this until 2034! So get your binoculars, blankets and intentions ready. 

According to The Old Farmer's Almanac, November's full moon is also called the Beaver Moon. Historically, it marks the time of year when beaver traps were set. Set them too late and lakes would freeze over, preventing the capture of the animals and limiting the amount of warm fur trappers would be able to sell for over the wintertime months.

Like October's supermoon, this month's Beaver Moon will appear larger because of its close proximity to Earth. The moon is set to reach its fullest around 8:52 a.m. EST on November 14. Moon worshipers on the East Coast can enjoy the moon at its peak that morning, but early risers on the West Coast can enjoy the full show.
