It’s been 68 years since we saw a supermoon like the one that will be visible later this month.
The supermoon — a full moon that occurs while the moon is at its closest point to Earth — is expected to reach its peak the morning of Nov. 14. It’ll be the brightest, closest supermoon to Earth since 1948.
Moons become “super” generally every 13 months and appear to be 14 percent bigger and 30 percent brighter than regular full moons.
The moon will appear especially large and bright throughout the night, but the peak time is at 7:52 a.m., after sunrise in North Texas. It should still be visible when it’s light out, depending on cloud cover.
