Don't Miss The Last Supermoon Of The Year
Don't miss Monday night's supermoon. You won't see another one like it until next year.
Don't let this year's last supermoon pass you by –– especially since you'll have to wait nearly a year for the next one.
A supermoon is a new or full moon that's at its closest to Earth.
The sixth this year is the night of Oct. 26 into the morning.
The fifth was an ultra-rare blood moon eclipse.

Each year, we expect four to six supermoons, but only a few coincide with full moons.
If you miss this week's show, you won't be able to see another full moon supermoon until next October.
