The best times to see November's big supermoon

- This Monday stargazers will get to experience a rare, extra bright supermoon. 

Want to make sure to spy it? According to NASA, the best time to see it is early Monday morning before sunrise, as the moon is closest to Earth at 6:22 am, EST. 

But Sunday night and Monday night are also really good times to see Earth's natural satellite. 

“I’ve been telling people to go out at night on either Sunday or Monday night to see the supermoon,” Noah Petro, deputy project scientist for NASA’s Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter mission, said in a statement. “The difference in distance from one night to the next will be very subtle, so if it’s cloudy on Sunday, go out on Monday. Any time after sunset should be fine."

The last time the full moon was this close to Earth was 1948, NASA says.
