The biggest moon since the Truman administration will light up the sky for the next two nights.
The so-called “supermoon”, the biggest and brightest full moon of 2016, will be highest in the north Florida sky shortly before midnight Monday morning. According to NASA, the moon will appear up to 14 percent bigger and 30 percent brighter than normal.
If you’re looking to catch a glimpse, though, Monday night will be best. Due to cloud cover early Monday, we believe the best viewing time in north Florida will be shortly after moonrise at 6:07 PM. Clouds will be clearing as the sun sets just after 5:30 PM, and the moon will appear largest when it is closer to the horizon.
