Best Places in Kalamazoo to See the Supermoon
These are the top places (literally) in Kalamazoo to see the Supermoon.
Monday, November 14 is the next Supermoon, The Moon will be the closest to Earth it’s been since January 1948- nearly 70 years ago. Sciencealert.com tells us
The Moon will appear up to 14 percent bigger and 30 percent brighter than an average full moon. This is the closest the Moon will get to Earth until 25 November 2034, so you really don’t want to miss this one.
So where is the ideal place for viewing this astronomical anomaly?
Kalamazoo County's highest point of elevation is in a neighborhood between 9th and 10th streets, just North of M-43. A hilltop near R Avenue and 6th Street near Pretty Lake Camp should also afford an elevated viewing point.
Man-made structures also give an excellent platform- consider SkyDeck or perhaps the roof of the parking garage at Borgess Hospital on Gull Road.
