Super Moon Tonight!

Supermoon NYC

Dear Commons Community,

The biggest, brightest moon of 2013 will dominate the sky this weekend, making its once-a-year appearance as the “super moon.”

The super moon appears 14 percent larger and 30 percent brighter than a normal fullmoon.

The moon officially turns full at 7:32 a.m. Sunday, but the best time to see it in the New York City area will be Saturday night into the wee hours of Sunday morning.

The super moon occurs when a full moon coincides with its closest approach to the Earth in its orbit.

It won’t be this close again until August 2014.
