Watch Supermoon tonight

A Supermoon is the coincidence of a full moon with the closest approach the Moon makes the Earth on its elliptocal orbit, resulting in the largest apparent size of the lunar disk seen from Earth.

The Nov 14 Supermoon is going to be a record-breaking after 68 years. It is going to be the biggest in nearly 70 years.

According to Mosti yesterday, the phenomenon would begin at 7.24pm and a full Moon might be happening at 9.54pm on Nov 14.

The ministry said the phenomenon also happened on May 6, 2012, June 23, 2013, Aug 10, 2014 and Sept 28, 2015.

The Supermoon on Nov 14 will be special because the Moon will be the nearest to Earth since 68 years ago, it said.

Malaysians are urged not to miss the happening on Nov 14 because the next Supermoon (not the nearest) will be 18 years later.
