The moon doesn't get much bigger and brighter than this.
On Monday, Earthlings will be treated to a so-called supermoon — the closest full moon of the year.
Monday's supermoon will be extra super — it will be the closest the moon comes to us in almost 70 years. And it won't happen again for another 18 years.
NASA says the closest approach will occur at 6:21 a.m. EST when the moon comes within 221,523 miles (356,508 kilometers). That's from the center of the Earth to the center of the moon. Full moon will occur at 8:52 a.m. EST.
NASA planetary geologist Noah Petro is urging everyone to step outside and soak in the view. At the time of closest approach, the moon will be setting and the sun rising, at least on the U.S. East Coast, so prime viewing will be Sunday and Monday nights there.
