1. What makes tonight’s Moon a so-called “Super Moon”? Not only is it a Full Moon, but it is also at it’s perigee, the closest the Moon will orbit to the center of the Earth. This year, the Moon will reach its perigee on Sunday, June 23 at 7:32 am.
If you want to get even closer, visit the Museum’s Arthur Ross Hall of Meteorites to see three Moon rocks collected on the Apollo missions.
Wondering how the Moon got there in the first place? Check out this video on the origin of our Moon.
The next Super Moon won’t be visible until August 10, 2014.
