In Americas? Watch SUPERMOON tonight 13 Nov 16. Closest it has been to earth in 70years!!!

August 10 supermoon over Ireland by Damian O'Sullivan.

Sometimes we get so caught up in the man-made nonsense and bs and toxic minutiae we have made of our lives, that we miss the simple wonders of living.

Things that would have been of utmost importance to our ancestors, go unnoticed by the bulk of us in our cutoff homes, amidst our overblown concerns.

There is wonder happening tonight, that our ancestors would have had festivals over, and created mythologies to immortalize.

Most of us won’t even look up to notice.

But a few will.

“The full moon of November 14, 2016 is not only the biggest, closest and brightest supermoon of this year. It’s the closest supermoon since January 26, 1948. Should you watch for this full moon on the night of November 14? Sure, and, if you do, it’ll be beautiful. But, for us in the Americas the moon is closer to full on the night of November 13.

The moon turns precisely full on November 14, 2016 at 13:52 UTC. This full moon instant will happen in the morning hours before sunrise November 14 in western North America and on many Pacific islands, east of the International Date Line. (See worldwide map below.)

In Asia and Australia, the moon turns precisely full during the evening hours of November 14. In New Zealand, it actually happens after midnight November 15. Around the longitudes of Europe or Africa, look both nights.

Better yet … everyone, look both nights!

The moon will look plenty full and bright all night long on both nights – November 13 and 14 – as it rises in the east around sunset, climbs highest up around midnight, and then sets in the west at or near sunrise.

The moon won’t come this close to Earth again until November 25, 2034. “
