Daily Postcard: Hunter’s Moon Over Pajarito Mountain

Daily Postcard: A hunter’s moon hovers above Pajarito Mountain early Monday morning. At its closest point over the weekend, the supermoon was 222,365 miles from Earth — on average, it’s 238,855 miles away, according to National Geographic. This kicks off three straight months of supermoons with the next appearances scheduled for Nov. 14 and Dec. 14. The November moon is set to be a real show-stopper: According to NASA, it is ‘not only the closest full moon of 2016 but also the closest full moon to date in the 21st century.’ It won’t be this close to Earth again until 2034.
