Extra-super moon!

On November 14, 2016, the moon becomes full within about two hours of perigee—arguably making it an extra-super moon. It can be as much as 14% bigger and 30% brighter than an apogee full moon. The full moon of November 14 is not only the closest full moon of 2016 but also the closest full moon to date in the 21st century. The full moon won’t come this close to Earth again until November 25, 2034.
