Scientists have revealed that the earth will witness the occurrence of a mega super moon by the middle of this month, November. Yahoo news reports that it will be the biggest super moon in seven decades.

According to Yahoo stories, the event will happen on the night of Monday, 14th.

The term, “super moon” is used to describe a full moon that is nearer than average to Earth as it orbits the planet. NASA defines it as a full moon that is within 90% of its closest approach to Earth in a given orbit.

The biggest supermoons can be seen as much as 14% bigger and 30% brighter than other full moons.

November’s super moon is expected to be the brightest and biggest since 1948.

Anticipation about the super moon is already high across the globe, with many people anxious to see the moon at its brightest in decades.
