VIEWING the SUPERMOON on 14th November.

We have been getting a lot of questions about where would be a good place to view the SUPERMOON on the 14th November.

A so-called “supermoon” occurs when the moon is not only full, but is orbiting close to Earth. This month’s full moon will be the closest to Earth since January 26, 1948.

NASA says a supermoon – technically called a perigee moon – can appear to be as much as 14 per cent bigger and 30 per cent brighter than a full moon at its furthest orbital point.

The supermoon is also called a “Harvest Moon” which dates back to the days when hunters would be out looking for food. The extra light allowed them to gather food longer.

WHERE TO SEE IT ~ Almost anywhere outdoors should be give a great view.

LOOKING WEST:- The longest unobstructed view should be from Cahill’s Lookout. Also good should be Sublime Point Lookout and Lincolns Rock.

LOOKING EAST:- The longest unobstructed view toward Sydney would be the lookout off Queen Elizabeth Drive, Wentworth Falls. Drive until till you get to the dirt track (about 500m) then drive down that for about 1km, the lookout is on the left. (CLOSED)

Govett’s Leap Lookout should also be good.

Also, consider Hawkesbury Lookout.

Hassan’s Wall Lookout Lithgow should be good overall.
