The best viewing of a supermoon is at moonrise when the moon begins to sneak above the horizon in the eastern sky. The full moon on Monday, November 14, 2016 will mark the biggest supermoon since January 26, 1948. Provided that the skies are clear, the Philippines will see a full moon that will appear exceptionally brighter and closer than it has in almost 70 years tonight.
The Moon's orbit around Earth is slightly elliptical, so sometimes it is closer, and sometimes it's farther away. In astronomy however, the event is called perigee full moon, or a full moon that is closer to Earth than average.
