CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - Wasn't last weekend's full moon just spectacular? I saw it through the windshield, riding through beautiful Geauga County.
The sun was about to set, so I couldn't take in the lush fall color that dresses the trees. I did, however, see one of the biggest and brightest moons I'd ever seen. Had I been in a convertible, I imagine that I'd have tried to reach out and touch it.
Isn't it true that it's in those moments that we're able to admire, to really take in nature's brilliance uninterrupted? This solar system we're a part of is unbelievable.
If you slept through last weekend's sky show, you will get another chance in less than one month.
Set your calendar for Nov. 14. If you're able to set a few moments aside (and if cloud cover allows), you'll be treated to yet another "super moon." (That means that the moon will be full and closer to Earth than the average full moon.)
November's super moon might even be MORE super than the others, as it will be the closest full moon we've seen in this century. According to NASA, the next time the moon will be that close to earth will be on Nov. 25, 2034.
Oh, you're busy on Nov. 14? No problem. We've got your back.
There will be ANOTHER super moon on Dec. 14. It will be so bright that it will make it tough to catch December's renowned Geminid meteor shower.
