Second, the reason there’s a moon pictured at all is because this coming Monday is set to be one of the most spectacular full moons we’ve seen in a while. Here’s the quote on the event from NASA:

The full moon of November 14 is not only the closest full moon of 2016 but also the closest full moon to date in the 21st century. The full moon won’t come this close to Earth again until November 25, 2034.
