A Super Rare “Mega Moon” Will Be Visible Over Montreal

We're in for quite a show!
A Super Rare “Mega Moon” Will Be Visible Over Montreal

About a month ago, Montreal was blessed with a rare Supermoon called a Harvest Moon.

If you were lucky enough to see it, then you know how spectacular it looked. But in case you missed it, worry not. Next month, Montreal will be lucky enough to see the biggest Supermoon of the year.

On November 14th the moon will be at its closest point from Earth which will make it appear up to 15% bigger and 30% brighter than it normally does.

But what makes this even more special, is that fact that this moon will also be full, making it a Super Full Moon which is even rarer.

Plus, because the moon will appear lower in the horizon, it will add to the optical illusion, making it seem even bigger.
