The largest Supermoon since 1948 is here

Madeline Gray—North State Journal
A supermoon rises over Raleigh on Sunday

Tomorrow the full moon will be the closest it has been to Earth since 1948 and it won’t be this close again until 2034. The moon will appear 15 percent bigger and 16 percent brighter than the average full moon. Sunday right at sunset was the recommended viewing time in North Carolina, but if you missed seeing it try again Monday after sunset. Clouds are in the forecast for Monday morning when the moon will be at its closest but are expected to clear off by the end of the day.
