AP - Supermoon to light up sky beginning Monday morning
AP reports: "The brightest moon in almost 69 years will be lighting up the sky this
week in a treat for star watchers around the globe.
The phenomenon known as the supermoon will reach its most luminescent in
North America before dawn on Monday. It will reach its zenith in Asia
and the South Pacific on Monday night. Across the international dateline
in New Zealand, it will reach its brightest after midnight on Tuesday
local time. [...] The moon will be at its brightest this week because it is coming closer to the Earth along its elliptical orbit than at any time since January 1948."
Comment: Many Bible prophecy commentators are noting the relationship between this supermoon and the founding of the modern state of Israel in 1948, as if this sign is a prophetic bookend of some kind marking the end of an era. Could there be something to that?
