TONIGHT'S MOON

The "super moon" set to rise on Nov. 14 will be the closest full moon since 1948 and until 2034.

Super moons occur because the Earth is not always perfectly centred within the moon's orbit. The moon orbits the Earth in such a way that sometimes the moon is very close to the Earth, and sometimes it is farther away. The point at which the moon is farthest from the Earth is the apogee, and the moment at which it is closest is the perigee.

The term super moon actually originated in astrological circles and is not a scientific term.

See it Tonight.  Shocked Shocked Shocked Shocked

Just to clear something up in the narrative  Roll Eyes Roll Eyes Roll Eyes

Let’s solve the further vs. farther mystery once and for all.
Farther

The word farther deals with physical distance, which can be measured. One way to remember this is to recall the phrase “far away.”
