Soon we could see the super full moon phenomenon in the sky during the night.

Monday November 14th, the distance between Earth and the Moon will be reduced by 50,000 kilometers.

The phenomenon occurs because there is a correlation between the full moon and the smallest distance between the earth and the moon, writes Drammens Tidende.

According to the National Geographic magazine, we have to back to 1948 to find that a full moon was so close to our own planet.

A super full moon can be as much as 14 percent larger and 30 percent brighter than a normal full moon. Weather permitting, the large moon to be visible over Norway.

Don’t lose this phenomenon, it is a long time until the next time. According to NASA, the next opportunity would be on November 25th of 2034.
