The North Carolina Sky Will Light Up With The Last Super Moon Of The Year This Week

Who knew something as life-altering as a pandemic and the inevitable way our lives have changed as a result, would prompt us to discover the adventure found in something looming overhead? In the last weeks during a stay-at-home period of practicing social responsibility, we’ve discovered more and more about celestial happenings that can be enjoyed from the spoils of our own domain. And this week’s super moon is one that shouldn’t be missed.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate

The full moon can be seen from dusk to dawn, with the peak occurring at 5:45 a.m. in North Carolina on May 6 and May 7, 2020.

For another fun celestial event taking place right now, pull out your telescope or binoculars to try to get a peek at a comet last seen by the Egyptians!
