Since I was little I have always been fascinated with the planets, stars and space in general. Last year during my senior year of high school I had the opportunity to take an astronomy elective and that passion that I had when I was little rekindled itself. Since then I have been interesting in all things astronomy, paying attention to cosmic events, updates in the field, and star and constellations in general.
So I just wanted to tell everyone out there that this Monday night not only will there be a full moon, but it will be a supermoon (when the moon is extra close to Earth) that is the brightest we have seen in half a century! It’s sure to be a cool sight so make sure to check it out!
Also if you like astronomy as much as I do, here a link to the astronomy picture of the day from NASA, a picture of the Great Rift near the center of the Milky Way.
