The biggest and brightest moon of the year made her appearance last night!
By Briony James
A super full moon occurs when the moon is at apogee–closest to the Earth in its orbit. A blue moon is the second of two full moons in a calendar month.
Yesterday’s beautiful moon was both, a rare occurrence that will not happen again until 2037! She rose here in SoCal at 7:35 pm, just one hour after she was astronomically full, appearing larger than normal, big and golden and utterly enchanting!
Did you sing to her? “Blue moon! You saw me standing alone….” She certainly gave us a show, even with the roll-in of the marine layer.
