Has the moon seemed extra bright this month?  That’s because it is!  A “super moon” is when the moon is at its closest point in its rotation around the earth.  Right now, we’re in the middle of 3 super moons is a row (October, November, December), but this is the SUPER-EST of the moons.  In fact, this is the closest we’ve been to the moon since 1948, and we won’t be this close again till 2034.  The magic moment–the very fullest point–happens at 6:52 tomorrow morning.
