The full moon of November 14, 2016 is not only the biggest, closest and brightest super moon of the year. It’s the closest super moon since January 26, 1948. The moon won’t come this close to Earth again until November 25, 2034.
The moon turns precisely full on November 14, 2016 at 1352 UTC, 5:52 a.m. PST. This full moon instant will happen in the morning hours before sunrise in western North America and the Pacific islands. But no matter. 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 sunset.
The best time to view the November super moon will be right around moonrise time — 6:02 p.m.
