The biggest supermoon in nearly 70 years is set to grace the night sky on November 14, and some Christians are viewing the event as a sign of the second coming of the Christian messiah, Jesus Christ. And although there is nothing to suggest that the moon will be any different that night, except in perceived size and brightness and relative proximity, there are a few interesting coincidences that have some believing Earth’s satellite is a portent of biblical proportions.

The Daily Star reported this week that November’s supermoon, set to reach its perigee (the actual term for the closest point a celestial object nears the body it orbits) on November 14, will be 14 percent bigger and 30 percent brighter than normal during its supermoon phase. CNN reported that scientists attest that the moon going through perigee is quite normal and that the supermoon occurs when the moon is both full and at perigee at the same time. In short, it happens often.

According to NASA, this month’s supermoon “becomes full within about two hours of perigee—arguably making it an extra-super moon.” It is also the second of three consecutive monthly supermoons.
