Did you catch a glimpse of the spellbinding moon this weekend? It’s luminosity and ginormous size means we experienced a supermoon, and according to an article published by NPR, we can expect to see another one in November and December. Apparently, that’s a rarity.  

NASA defines supermoon as “a full moon that is closer to Earth than average.” And this weekend’s moon was roughly 222,365 miles from Earth. (So close, but yet, so far.)

Now that you know the moon will be getting close and personal very soon (the next one occurs November 14, followed by the last one on December 14), it’s time to start planning a romantic moonlit stroll with bae or think about hosting a full moon party.

Let the mooning shenanigans commence! (But, jeez, keep your pants on. Or don't—we won't judge).
