Last Sunday was an exciting moment for many students and faculty. This full moon was the biggest, closest and brightest supermoon of the year. The next time the moon becomes close to the Earth is Nov 14, 2016. Many students came to the Upper Field to view this spectacular event.

Sophomore Mira Zelle attended the viewing party for the supermoon.

“I used the super big telescope and you could see every lil’ bump on the surface,” Zelle said.

Zelle finds space fascinating. “Nobody really knows whats out there so it can kinda be what ever I want it to be. Also I really think we can find aliens in this lifetime and I definitely [want to] be working on that in the future,” Zelle said.
