Supermoon June 23, 2013

From the Web

Another rare opportunity to experience a supermoon in 2013.

The next full moon on June 23 will not only be the largest full moon of the year but also the moon’s closest encounter with Earth for the entire year. We’ll be able to almost touch!

Called a perigree full moon by astronomers, it will be at its closest point to Earth at precisely 11.32 Universal Time aka GMT.

Although last May’s full moon was also called a supermoon, June’s will be even more magnificent. For many viewers, the moon will appear about as full on the evening of June 22nd as on the evening of the 23rd.
