Tonight’s Supermoon Will Set Record
Notice that the moon's looked awfully big the last few days? It's because this full moon is no ordinary "Supermoon!"
What makes a Supermoon so super? According to Snopes there's two conditions that have to happen: it must be a full moon and the moon must be experiencing it's closest approach to Earth. This time around the supermoon will be the closest to Earth as it's been since 1948. It won't come this close again until 2034.
Technically the moon reached it's largest appearance at 6:52 a.m. but it will still appear HUGE when it rises over the Treasure Valley tonight. Moon rise happens at 6:02 p.m.
Want to experience the supermoon in all of it's glory? My friends from the Boise Area Runners are hosting a Full Moon Walk/Run and Hot Cocoa social hour tonight at 7 p.m.! If you'd like to join them they're meeting at the Freestone Creek Trail head in the Military Reserve. To find take Mt. Cove Road to where it turns into a dirt road, pass the cemetery and the parking will be on your right where the restrooms are!
