Supermoon Visible from Mississauga This Saturday Night
If you’e looking for a pretty sight, make sure to watch the sky on Saturday (Oct. 15) evening.
Moonrise and moonset data for Mississauga shows that this month’s full moon will come late Saturday night at around 12:23 a.m.
But it’s no ordinary full moon — it’s a supermoon, meaning the moon’s full size will coincide with its shorter than normal distance from the Earth. As a result, the moon will look larger than it usually does.
The data predicts that the full moon will be about 358,424 kilometres from the Earth’s centre, the second-shortest distance in the month of October. It will also appear very bright with an estimated illumination of 99.9 per cent.
It should make for quite the view, so don’t miss it! But if you aren’t able to catch this supermoon, worry not — another one will be appearing in November and is expected to be the largest of the year.
