The Last Supermoon of a Year Will Give You Chills for a Very Specific Reason
December 8, 2016 - Supermoon
This year has been cosmically epic. The Leonid, Perseid and Orionid meteor showers were all flattering damn awesome, as was a possibility to see a Northern Lights. We were psyched to check out the final Super Beaver Moon until 2034 and now we’re prepping for a final super moon of a year, December’s supermoon, that is in fact called a Cold Moon. Chills!
This month’s supermoon, apparently your final possibility to see one this year, will gleam splendid on Dec 14th nearby a stars of a constellation Taurus.
For those who don’t know, according to NASA, a supermoon is “a new or full moon that occurs when a moon is within 90% of a closest proceed to Earth in a given orbit, supermoon now refers some-more broadly to a full moon that is closer to Earth than average.”
This month’s supermoon is deemed a Cold Moon for a flattering apparent reason. Because it occurs in December, it’s compared with a chilliest time of a year. Brrr!
