'Extra-super Moon' to brighten sky on November 14, NASA astronomers say
Get ready to mark November 14 in your stargazing calendar — astronomers say this is the day the Moon will be at its closest point to Earth in 70 years.
The event, known as the supermoon, occurs when a full or new moon passes closer to earth in its monthly orbit.
The coincidence will take place three times in 2016 — October 16, November 14 and December 14.
But the November supermoon is special because it will be "the closest full moon to date in the 21st century", according to NASA.
It will become full just two hours after its closest approach to Earth, arguably making it an "extra-super Moon".
It is not expected to appear again until November 25, 2034.
