The full moon of November 14, 2016 was not only the biggest, closest and brightest supermoon of the year. It’s the closest supermoon since January 26, 1948. While the moon looked 15 percent bigger and 16 percent brighter than a typical full moon, the average amateur astronomer won't see much of a difference. "That's not enough to notice unless you're a very careful moon-watcher," Sky & Telescope magazine senior editor Alan MacRobert said in a statement.
