Although I am quit busy with a new book project coming up, I really wanted to watch the ‘moonrise’ of the Supermoon.
For my meeting with the Supermoon I went to the ruins of pre-Islamic Sumhuram in Khor Rori nearby Salalah city. This ancient port that played an important role in the big frankincense trade has also an inner and outside temple dedicated to the moon God Sin. So only for this reason my visit was quiet special and interesting.
Also other places in Oman witnessed this celestial phenomenon.
Today the November “supermoon” is extra close to the Earth. November’s supermoon —a term used to describe a full moon is at its perigee, or closest point to Earth during the lunar orbit — will be the biggest and brightest supermoon to rise in almost 69 years. In fact, the full moon won’t come this close to Earth again until Nov. 25, 2034.
