Signs in the Skies: Biggest supermoon in living memory set for November 14th

Signs in the Skies: Biggest supermoon in living memory set for November 14th
 Luke 21:25
And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars

It is set to be an incredible astronomical show - and one which won't appear again until 2034.
On November 14th, the Moon will be the closest to Earth it's been since January 1948.
During the event, it will appear up to 14 percent bigger and 30 percent brighter than an average full moon.

WHAT IS A SUPERMOON? 

Since the moon's orbit is elliptical, one side (perigee) is about 30,000 miles closer to Earth than the other (apogee).
The word syzygy, in addition to being useful in word games, is the scientific name for when the Earth, sun, and moon line up as the moon orbits Earth.
When perigee-syzygy of the Earth-moon-sun system occurs and the moon is on the opposite side of the Earth from the sun, we get a perigee moon or more commonly, a supermoon! 
Miss it, and you're in for a long wait - it is the closest the Moon will get to Earth until 25 November 2034.
In fact, it is the third supermoon of the year - and the most impressive. 
On October 16 and December 14, the moon becomes full on the same day as perigee. 
However, on November 14, it becomes full within about two hours of perigee—arguably making it an extra-super moon.
It is not only the closest full moon of 2016 but also the closest full moon to date in the 21st century.
It will happen in the morning hours before sunrise in western North America and the Pacific islands to the east of the International Date Line).
 The best time to view a super moon is when the moon is low on the horizon where 'an illusion will occur that makes it look unnaturally larger,' according to AccuWeather. 
However, the moon will look plenty full and bright all night long on both nights, astronomers say – 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 moon will reach the crest of its full phase on November 14 at 1352 UTC. 
That translates to 9:52 a.m. AST, 8:52 a.m. EST, 7:52 a.m. CST, 6:52 a.m. MST, 5:52 a.m. PST. 
The supermoon of December 14 will beremarkable for a different reason: it's going to wipe out the view of the Geminid meteor shower, Nasa said..

In eastern North America, the moon will have set before the moon turns exactly full, and it¿ll be a waning moon that rises on the evening of November 14.

'Bright moonlight will reduce the visibility of faint meteors five to ten fold, transforming the usually fantastic Geminids into an astronomical footnote,' it claims. 
Sky watchers will be lucky to see a dozen Geminids per hour when the shower peaks.
'A supermoon is undeniably beautiful,' said Nasa.
'And we can multiply that beauty by three as 2016 comes to a close.
October 16, November 14, and December 14: mark your calendar and enjoy the super moonlight.
Earlier this year a Hunter's moon and a supermoon  combined.
The combination produced a red moon which appears larger than normal, and should be visible in the northern hemisphere this weekend. 
When the atmosphere is thicker, it lets red light pass through, which means that when the moon is near the horizon, it appears red

A Hunter's moon, which is also a blood moon, rises much earlier in the evening than usual.
It is the first full moon after the Harvest moon.
Typically, the moon rises 50 minutes later each day, according to Universe Today.

But a blood moon tends to rise only 30 minutes later – shortening the time between sunset and moon rise.
The red colour is caused by the moon's proximity to the horizon.
An article in EarthSky, stated: 'The orange colour of a moon near the horizon is a true physical effect.
'It stems from the fact that - when you look toward the horizon - you are looking through a greater thickness of Earth's atmosphere than when you gaze up and overhead.'

Blue light is scattered by the atmosphere, which usually makes the moon appear white in the sky.
But when the atmosphere is thicker, it lets red light pass through, which means that when the moon is near the horizon, it appears red.
As well as appearing red, the moon is also predicted to look bigger than usual this weekend due to a supermoon.

BLOOD MOON TRICKS 

In February 1504, explorer Christopher Columbus used a blood moon to trick Jamaican natives who had been feeding him and his men, but cut them off when relations turned sour.
Columbus knew a blood moon had been forecast, and warned the natives that his god would send an angry 'sign' at their treatment of the newcomers.
Legend has it the natives came running with food as soon as the Moon turned red.
The supermoon occurs when the moon is at its closest distance to Earth during its orbit – making it appear larger than normal.
People in the Northern Hemisphere can catch a glimpse of this rare blood and supermoon this weekend.
But there is good news for those in the Southern Hemisphere – a blood supermoon should appear between March and September.
The best time to watch the blood supermoon depends on your location.
For the UK, the moon turns full at 5:23am BST on October 16, at which time the oon shines in their western sky.
The event is known as a 'blood moon' (stock image shown) owing to the red colour of the moon. It occurs when the moon passes in to the shadow of Earth called the umbra. At this stage, the Earth's atmosphere scatters the sun's red visible light, the same process that turns the sky red at sunset.

On average, there are two eclipses a year but some are penumbral - which means the moon only passes through the outer portion of Earth¿s shadow - so the effect is much less noticeable.
