Three Consecutive Supermoons Began On Sunday

UPDATE: It is being reported that next month's supermoon on November 14th will be closer to the earth than the moon has been since 1948, the year Israel became a nation.

From The Week:

Step outside around moonrise Sunday evening and, weather permitting, you'll be treated to the sight of a supermoon, an unusually large and bright view of the moon that occurs when the moon is full and comparatively close to Earth.

This is the first of three consecutive supermoons at the end of 2016. The second, on Nov. 14, will see a full moon closer to Earth than any full moon until November of 2034. The third supermoon, on Dec. 14, will coincide with a meteor shower, though the brightness of the moon will obscure most meteor visibility.
