Forget Trump, There’s A Supermoon

Instead, please take a minute to look at the Moon this evening. Go on I dare you. Do it. Instead of scrolling down endless news articles on Trump’s latest policy on wallmaking, or getting incredibly annoyed at your electronic friend’s sudden political views, tilt your neck backwards to allow your eyes to focus on a celestial object which will be the closest to us in our lifetime. Ask yourself some questions; have an educated guess at how you think the Moon got there. Look at the surrounding stars and question whether you believe other civilisations exist or not. Astronomers say the Moon will be just 221,525 miles away from the Earth on November 14, meaning it will appear up to 30% brighter and 14% bigger than usual.
