On Saturday, October 15 and Sunday, October 16, a rare Hunter’s Supermoon lit up the skies.
A supermoon is a full moon that is at its closest to Earth and looks bigger and brighter than usual. The hunter’s moon makes its appearance once a year.
The supermoon joined the hunter’s moon, making it 14% bigger than the smallest full moon and 1% brighter than last month’s harvest moon. Not only is it bigger and brighter, but it appears much redder. The best time to have seen the moon was at sunset when it made its first appearance.
Did you take a look at the skies last night? Did you take any pictures? Let us know. If you missed it, mark your calendars for November where a better supermoon will light up the skies once again.
