See the Supermoon!
by Rich Aguilera

Bonjour, everyone! 

This Saturday night there will be an interesting event for all you people who like to look at the night sky.  Anyone in the United States will be treated to a "supermoon" event.  You may ask, What in the world is a supermoon?

Our moon does an elliptical orbit around our planet. The distance of the moon from our planet varies from 222,000 miles to 252,000 miles away.  That's a variation of 30,000 miles! This Saturday the moon will be the closest to planet Earth that it will be all year.  What makes this Saturday night extra special is that it is also going to be a full moon! The moon is going to look huge!

Don't worry—you don't have to sneak out of bed in the middle of the night to catch the giant moon show. The best time to view the moon will be in the early evening, just after the moon rises.  I hope you'll take a moment to go outside this Saturday night and see if the moon looks noticeably bigger to you.
