As night sets in on November 14, wander outside and gawk at the sky. If the weather is clear, the #moon will be at its biggest and brightest in nearly 70 years, and it won’t put on a similar display until late 2034, astronomers say.
A so-called “#supermoon” occurs when the moon is not only full, but is orbiting close to Earth. This month’s #full moon will be the closest to Earth since January 26, 1948.
NASA says a supermoon – technically called a perigee moon – can appear to be as much as 14 per cent bigger and 30 per cent brighter than a full moon at its furthest orbital point.
But NASA says the November 14 moon could, arguably, even be called an “extra-supermoon”, and here’s why.

According to an age-old farming tradition, the phase of the #moon has a huge impact on how well a plant will grow. Without getting too bogged down in the nitty-gritty of astrological signs, here’s the general idea behind gardening according to the moon. The whole idea hinges on the idea that the moon’s gravitational pull affects water in the ground. This is very similar to the way the moon affects the ocean’s changing tides.
According to the tradition, the moon’s pull on groundwater has a direct impact on how well different plants grow. The time between a brand new moon and the #full moon is called the waxing phase. The moon gets bigger and bigger every night during this phase.
As the moon gets increasingly large, it pulls water up toward the surface of the Earth. This is the time to plant things that produce fruit or leaves above ground.This would include things like tomatoes, leafy greens, grains, squash, beans, and most important of all, cannabis.
