Will Western Montana Get to See Supermoon?
The clear weather conditions may be coming to an end by Monday, which may be a day too soon. :-(
But we'll hope for the best and peek through the clouds if we have to, to get to see the moon as close to earth as it's been since the 1940s.
The so-called supermoon is the closest one about every 14 months, but the one Monday morning promises to be super-spectacular. It will be the closest the moon has come to Earth in 69 years, and we won't see it this close again until 2034.
The closest approach will occur at 4:21 a.m. local time, when the moon comes within 221,523 miles. Full moon arrives at 6:52 a.m. So, with a little luck (clear skies) we could be experiencing an amazing morning commute! Better than the average way to start a Monday, right? DB
