Don’t let this year’s final supermoon pass we by –– generally given you’ll have to wait nearly a year for a subsequent one.

A supermoon is a new or full moon that’s during a closest to Earth.

The sixth this year is a night of Oct. 26 into a morning.

The fifth was an ultra-rare blood moon eclipse.

The moon seemed 14 percent incomparable than normal and coincided with a lunar eclipse.

Each year, we design 4 to 6 supermoons, though usually a few coincide with full moons.

This year started with three supermoons in a row, though they were during a start of a lunar cycle when a moon is dimly lit. Not as exciting.

If we skip this week’s show, we won’t be means to see another full moon supermoon until Oct 2016.
