CHESTERVILLE — A full moon last approached this close to earth 68 years ago, according to NASA.  The ‘supermoon’ spectacle continues this evening (Nov. 13-14) and again tomorrow night. But it will appear at its largest tomorrow morning before moonset at 6:42 a.m.

Stargazers will have to wait until 2034 for another supermoon of this calibre.
