For weeks we haven't had any rain and the sky has been clear. So we were really looking forward to going out yesterday morning, Monday November 14th, to see the supermoon at its' brightest and biggest condition.
Alas, we woke up to a heavy layer of ground fog and above that a completely overcast sky. The moon, never mind the super moon, was nowhere to be seen.
During yesterday's full "supermoon" the moon came closer to the Earth than it has since 1948. The moon was at its' biggest and brightest on Monday morning (Nov 14). Yesterday's supermoon - a term used to describe a full moon at its' perigee, or closest point to the Earth during the lunar orbit - was the biggest and brightest supermoon to rise in almost 60 years. In fact, the full moon won't come that close to Earth again until Nov 25, 2034. We figured that the probability that we'll see that one is about as good as our opportunity turned out to be yesterday - ZILCH. .
