Extreme Supermoon will be a rare treat tonight

EXTREME SUPERMOON WILL BE A RARE TREAT FOR ALL TO SEE TONIGHT

The Full Moon will rise in the sky tonight but it won't be just full ~ it will be an "Extreme Supermoon " making its closest approach to Earth in 18 years. 

The moon, which will appear about 10 to 15 percent larger than normal, could possibly create abnormally high tides through Sunday. The tides are going to be higher, worldwide and the moon will look huge and orangey"

The moon will closely resemble a "harvest moon", said Mark Jankowski, of Ingram Planetarium in Sunset Beach, North Carolina.

Sunset will be the best time to look at the moon.  So we are heading over to Sunset Beach, less than a mile away from where we live in Sea Trail Plantation, to watch the beautiful sunset in the west sky and then watch the moon come up in the east sky.

Next full moon is April 18th ~ so if you want to do a comparison tonight ~ Mark Jankowski suggests holding a card at arm's length  while facing the moon tonight and mark the width of the moon on the card. Compare it to the moon on April 18th.

Tonight's moon will be 14 times larger and 30 times brighter tonight. Pictures to be posted later ~

Frank & Karen,

I hadn't caught this information. We are experiencing some Extreme rain in CA. So it doesn't look like we're going to see it this time.

Thanks for sharing though,

Steve

The moon was amazing, though I had to wait a long time to finally see it from behind the buildings and trees. You are lucky to live in Sunset Beach.
