On the rise! A super moon is heading our way bringing with it super tides. On Monday, at 6:15am the moon will be the closest it’s been to the earth in almost 69 (hehe) years! It will look its biggest and brightest at 4:30pm right after sunset. King tides will be back with higher than normal tides. Peak tides are expected to be between 12.4 and 12.5 feet high on November 15th at noon. If it’s windy we could see a 13 foot tide. Yikes! Avoid Morrissey Boulevard near UMass!
