People should not miss the full moon of Nov. 14, which will be the closet and biggest supermoon since 1948, the Taipei Astronomical Museum said Friday.
The full moon is called a supermoon when it becomes full on the same day as its perigee -- the point of its elliptical orbit that is closest to Earth.
According to the museum, the Nov. 14 supermoon will be 14 percent bigger than this year's smallest full moon, recorded in April.
It will be visible in Taiwan from the evening of Nov. 14 until the early morning of Nov. 15, as long as the sky is clear, it said.
The moon will not appear this big again until Nov. 25, 2034, the museum said.
