Did you see the ‘supermoon’ over New Jersey this weekend?
Well it was actually over just about everywhere this past weekend but the skies were so clear over New Jersey Sunday night that if you saw it you had to notice.
Coming over the horizon around 7:15 PM, the color was an amber/orange due to the Earth's atmosphere. As it rose higher in the sky and appeared to get smaller, it still looked larger that usual.
That's because when a "supermoon" occurs it is closer to Earth than normal. Don't worry if you missed it, there are two more this year. The next is on November 14th and one more on December 14th.
