Be sure to look to the sky this weekend for something magnificent!

You won’t miss it either because the moon will appear 14 percent larger and 30 percent brighter!

It's the second of three consecutive supermoons this year, but is the largest and brightest of 2016. This supermoon is highly anticipated because it will be the closest full moon since 1948. We're not expected to have another full moon this close to Earth until November 2034.

You can see the bright moon all weekend, but it is the largest and brightest Sunday night into Monday morning (Nov 13th-14th) . It reaches its complete full moon stage Monday morning at 7:52 a.m.

Meteorologist Nicole Phillips spoke to Dr. Alex Young, a NASA scientist from the Goddard Space Flight Center, in Maryland to discuss this amazing phenomena.
