If you are anywhere in Vietnam, step outside at 8:52 p.m. on November 14, and take a look at the Moon, it’s going to be ‘super,' says the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).
If the weather is clear, says NASA, the moon will be awe inspiring, at its biggest and brightest in nearly 70 years. It won't put on another similar display until late 2034.
The last time the Moon was this close to Earth was January 1948.
NASA says a supermoon – technically called a perigee moon – can appear to be as much as 14% bigger and 30% brighter than an ordinary full moon.

Supermoons are made possible because the Moon’s orbit around Earth isn't perfectly circular.
NASA also said this November's supermoon will be the closest full moon of the century, so far— but it still will be some 48,280 kilometres away.
If you're in the city, get on top of the highest building that you can for the best view, says NASA, and look east.VOV
