If you were driving east on Sunday, November 10th within the Williams & Fulton County areas just before dark you may have noticed that the moon appeared much larger than normal.
The visualization had nothing to do with the recent time change as darkness has suddenly crept in an hour earlier than we have been used to.
The moon and earth were physically closer to each other Sunday thus the moon appeared the largest to the naked eye since 1948.
The “Super Moon” lit up not only the evening sky but also social media as local residents were able to capture amazing photos, in part due to clear skies in Northwest Ohio.
If you missed the moon on Sunday evening, mark your calendar for the year 2034, the next time the moon will appear this large according to scientists.
