By BBN Staff: Belizean stargazers are preparing their telescopes to spy the closest and brightest supermoon visible to the earth in almost 70 years.

This is a supermoon of supermoons — a moon so plump and rare it hasn’t been seen in nearly 70 years. It will rise in the east-northeast heralding a fly-by that won’t occur again until 2034.

Tonight and tomorrow night are also great times to admire the natural phenomenon.

The best time is 6:22 a.m. early Monday morning, right before sunrise according to NASA.

The moon will be the closest it has been to Earth and will appear brighter.

Tonight’s preview of the supermoon will be just as impressive as tomorrow because it will be the biggest and brightest full moon in 68 years. That means the moon will appear as much as 14 percent bigger than the smallest moon and 30 percent brighter than the average full moon.

NASA officials say Monday’s full moon, the November full moon is nicknamed the Beaver Moon  and will be the closest to Earth since 1948.

The next time the moon will become a full moon when it is this close to the planet will be 18 years from now.
