MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — If the moon looks a little bigger and brighter to you these days, you’re right.
WCCO Radio Meteorologist Mike Lynch explains the so-called “supermoon” phenomenon.
“The ‘supermoon’ is actually a term that comes from astrology, not astronomy,” Lynch said.
Astrologer Richard Knoll invented the term. Lynch says the full moon is actually the closest to the earth that it will get this year.
