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 as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.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!
