August 10 2014: Super Moon in Brooklyn: Where Can You Watch The Super Moon Rise?
A rare event's going to occur on August 10r: the "super moon," an especially big full moon, will appear.A super moon happens  when the full moon coincides with being closest to Earth. With Brooklyn's weather forecast calling for clear skies and crisp, cool weather, Saturday night will be perfect for moon-gazing.

Date and Time: Sunday, August 10, 2014 at 2:10 PM

What NASA Says:
On Aug. 10, 2014, the moon will become full just as it reaches the place in its orbit (perigee) closest to Earth. This full moon –- also known as a supermoon -– will be as much as 14% closer and 30% brighter than other full moons of the year.  The annual Perseid meteor shower occurs from Aug. 11-13. NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center hosts a live Ustream and web chat on the night of Aug. 12.
Where can you see the super moon in Brooklyn?
 The good news is, if the moon's that big — you can probably see if from just about anywhere in Brooklyn.

That said, here are some great places in Brooklyn that are either elevated, or offer a wide vista of the sky.
Oh, and by the way, the moon isn't really bigger, it's just closer to earth.

Places in Brooklyn To Watch the "Super Moon" Rise

  1. Coney Island & Brighton Beach:Atlantic Ocean boardwalk from Brighton Beach to Coney Island
  2. The Brooklyn Bridge: Drive over the Brooklyn Bridge. Or, walk if it's early in the evening, but take care late at night; bring your street smarts.
  3. [post_ads]Bay Ridge: Shore Road Park
  4. Bay Ridge & Bensonhurst: Drive over the Verranzano Narrows Bridge
  5. Brooklyn Heights Promenade: Brooklyn Heights Promenade
  6. Carroll Gardens: Columbia Street
  7. Downtown Brooklyn: Drive over the Manhattan Bridge

  11. Red Hook: The park behind Ikea, or the Louis Valentino, Jr. Park and Pier
  12. Sunset Park : Sunset Park (the park) is one of the highest spots in Brooklyn. Use judgment at night in a NYC park.
