A full moon the likes of which we haven’t seen for almost 70 years will grace skies around the world on Monday night.
The “supermoon — so named because the moon will be both in its full phase and at its closest point to Earth during its orbit at the same time — will be the closest of its kind since 1948.
This cosmic coincidence won’t happen again until 2034, according to NASA.
From Sunday night through Monday night, the moon will be big, bright and shining just about 216,486 miles from Earth’s surface. If you have good weather, you should be able to spot it.
In North America, the moon will hit perigee 6:23 a.m. ET Monday, making it to full phase about three hours later. In the UK, perigee will occur at 11:23 a.m. GMT.
In Australia, it will hit perigee 12:53 a.m. AEDT early Tuesday morning, although it will be best viewed during Monday’s sunset.
You can also see a live feed of the full moon Monday night thanks to the Slooh Community Observatory starting Sunday at 8 p.m. ET.
