Tomorrow morning at 6:22 a.m. will be the peak in Brevard County for the largest full moon since 1948.

BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Tomorrow morning at 6:22 a.m. will be the peak in Brevard County for the largest full moon since 1948.

The supermoon (perigee full moon) on Monday will bring the moon closer to Earth than it has been since January 26, 1948. What’s more, the moon won’t come this close to Earth again until November 25, 2034.

That makes the November 2016 full moon the closest and largest supermoon in a period of 86 years.

Should you look for it on November 14? Yes! But be sure to look tonight as well.

For many on Earth, the moon will be more “super” that night … although both nights will be awesome!
