That's when the moon zooms nearby to offer us a big, bright supermoon, a full moon that occurs when our lunar buddy is closer than usual. Last month's full moon - on October 16, 2016 - was also a supermoon. Variations in gravitational forces means the moon's orbit is sometimes more oval shaped, and other times more like a circle. Earlier on Monday the gap between the Earth and the moon closed to its shortest point, known as the perigee - a distance of 221,525 miles.
And then you got a guy named Mr. Trump, who goes around saying, "I'm gonna champion you!" I mean, Trump was incredibly weak, and its ahistorical, the lack of specificity that he had in any of his proposals. "But the idea in a democracy in the United States of America that a winning candidate would try to imprison the losing candidate, that's what dictatorships are about", he said.
What's more, the full moon won't come this close to Earth again until November 25, 2034, according to a statement from NASA. That's what meteorologists call a new or full moon that occurs when the celestial body is within 90 percent of its closest approach to Earth in its orbit.
He then staged an incredible recovery in the closing laps on fresh tyres after losing ground when Red Bull mistakenly switched to intermediates. "I've known the family for a while, and I like them", said Wolff. First of all, I felt that unfortunately for Max there was a negative spin in some of the media around his driving, which I said was unjustified in my eyes, and that I felt it needed to be counter-steered somehow.
A powerful climate phenomenon in the Pacific known as El Niño, which pushes up global temperatures, led to a spike in temperatures in the early months of the year.

Michael Brune, Executive Director of the Sierra Club, said, "Trump must choose whether he will be a President remembered for putting America and the world on a path to climate disaster, or for listening to the American public and keeping us on a path to climate progress".

At the worldwide level, many important foreign policy achievements of Obama including the Iran deal, Trans-Pacific Pact (TPP) as well as the war against ISIS might see a policy shift under Trump administration.

Nasa says its closest approach occurred at 11:21 GMT on Monday when the moon comes within 221,523 miles. A supermoon occurs when the moon is slightly closer to Earth than it typically is, and the effect is most noticeable when it occurs around the same time as a full moon.
Under Trump, the EPA will probably drop its support for the plan in court, given that Trump's EPA transition team is led by Myron Ebell , a well-known climate change skeptic with the Competitive Enterprise Institute and chairman of the Cooler Heads Coalition, which questions "global warming alarmism" and opposes "energy rationing policies." In one of the last debates between the two major party candidates, the word "climate" was uttered only once and by Clinton, who referenced climate ...
The Jaguar I-Pace price is yet to be revealed, but we expect it to be dearer than the firm's gasoline powered F-Pace SUV which starts at around $42,000 (£35,000, around AU$55,000). But the team is confident its sleek aerodynamics will persist, from the flush, drag-reducing door handles and the side skirts that channel air more efficiently around the wheels to the steeply sloped rear window and the rear diffuser that generates cleaner airflow at the rear-all are achievable mechanisms for the ...

At least, not with Dak Prescott healthy and leading the team to an 8-1 record and a comfortable lead in the NFC East. Brugler went on to explain how he can't be too hard on teams for missing on Prescott. No more talking about next year in Dallas. The rookie has completed more than two-thirds of his passes, 14 of which have gone for touchdowns with only 2 interceptions.
Many regard Trump as the living repudiation of everything Obama stands for, but the president sought to find elements of consolation. "The whole trip was created to give Europe a boost of self-confidence because Europe was increasingly anxious about the nature of the USA presidential campaign, the tone and tenor coming from then-candidate Donald Trump ", said Heather Conley, senior vice president for Europe at the Center for Strategic and International Studies in Washington .
Whoever it was, he said , should recognise the strength of the last year's climate agreement and what it could help the world to achieve.

James scored 27 points and pulled down 10 rebounds in the Cavaliers' 105-94 victory over the Wizards .

The moon will be 221,524 miles from earth, compared with an average distance of 238,900 miles. So that as the Moon orbits the Earth every 27 days or so, it goes in an elliptical or oblong shape. And it won't happen again for another 18 years. The Supermoon can be viewed from a number of locations from around the world, and it will be at its brightest and fullest Sunday night and Monday morning, depending on where you are located in the U.S.
Meanwhile, President-Elect Donald Trump has included the Keystone pipeline as one of the projects he would push forward in his first 100 days, and has expressed the need for more domestic oil.

For now, the special Snapchat filter is the only way you can try on the glasses before you buy them. With the Loma Vista location for the Spectacles vending machines being far more remote than the Venice beach location, it is apparent that, in contradiction to the prevailing theories, Snap's new glasses will probably not be made available first at big urban centers like San Francisco and NY.
Trump's position seemed to change on the topic in recent days. Mr Trump on Monday spoke on the phone with Russian President Vladimir Putin , the Kremlin announced, and both agreed their countries' relations were "extremely unsatisfactory".
Results? He nailed a 28-footer to start his night, and make it the centerpiece of a second consecutive excellent Warrior performance. And just like that, Kevin Durant is validated. "I think he's really happy he made the decision for his own reasons, not anybody else's". For one night at least he vastly outplayed counterpart Steven Adams , and finished with eight points, 10 rebounds, five assists and three huge blocks in a tidy 23 minutes of work.
This " supermoon " appeared 14% bigger and 20% brighter than normal because it was unusually close to the earth's surface. The phenomenon will be seen in most parts of the world, Nigeria included. According to the astronomy website earthsky.org, the term supermoon entered usage five years ago when the closest full moon fell on March 19, 2011.
The full moon, in alignment with the Earth and sun, combines with the unusually close distance to create a strong gravitational pull. A supermoon is a full or new moon that occurs when the moon is less than 360,000 kilometres from the centre of Earth.

The tough-talking and sometimes temperamental Trump that millions saw during the campaign appeared to be genuinely humbled by the huge responsibility staring at him. "I'm not going to take the salary". He says he won't.

But a section of the transition team's website made it clear Trump plans to "scrap" the Obama administration's Climate Action Plan and Clean Power Plan, saying they would not have "any measurable effect on Earth's climate". "But we will still get there". The goal of the Paris agreement to reduce atmospheric warming will be nearly impossible without the cooperation of the United States, the second largest greenhouse gas polluter in the world after China, who does participate in the Paris ...
Trump has called global warming a hoax and has promised to quit the Paris Agreement , which was strongly supported by outgoing Democratic U.S. President Barack Obama. But many countries are hoping he will change his mind once in office. But the new Paris accord is even more ambitious: it requires the elimination of net greenhouse gas emissions by 2100 and to keep "warming to below 2 degrees Celsius (3.6°F) above pre-industrial times".
