Extremely Rare November Supermoon Promises To Be Extra Special When Viewed From Hawaii

It is a visually stunning sight to see a sunrise, sunset, an eclipse, or celestial moon that may sell you on a dream of dropping everything and moving to some place you’ve only been to once in your life. A “perigee moon,” aka “supermoon,” is one of the many sights that will stop you dead in your tracks and have you in love with these islands forever.

If you’re already in love with these islands, as I am, and always have been being born and raised here, and have not decided to move here, then I dare you to take a walk on a beach on November 14, 2016 to see what the fuss of Hawaii is all about. 

Under the combination of this amazing moon, our ocean breezes, amazing textures of sands that vary from beach to beach, and the amazing mountain reflection that casts a presence that you’re lost in paradise, you’ll be begging for just one more night with this beautiful spectacle.

However, this moon hasn’t been this close to the earth since around 1948, according to The Old Farmer’s Almanac, and won’t come this close to us again until sometime in November 2034. It’s expected to reach the peak of its phase on Nov. 14, at 8:52 a.m. EDT.

Don’t Miss This Once-in-a-Lifetime Event

I must warn you! Dare not to take a companion that you might be a little “giddy” for on “a short walk on the beach,” or you might find yourself completely entranced by this person, and possibly fall head over heals in love.

I mean, come on, the moon is gonna “appear” 14% larger; everything will be glowing, the setting will be perfect for a passionate first kiss, a snuggle by the shoreline listening to the waves softly crashing, a gentle conversation of the future, and the possibility of turning your relationship into more than just friends, or converting your couple status into a family status.

Or it would be the perfect opportunity to pull out that ring that you’ve been hiding and pop the big question to that one who has captured your heart, and ask them to spend the rest of their life with you.

As for me, I think it will be the perfect time to gather the friends and children and have a little barbecue by the beach, and maybe do a little full moon surf session at one of our favorite beaches. This is just one of the many ways I like to enjoy my time in these islands, and a way to experience what Hawaii has to offer from a whole new perspective. A few glow sticks and you got yourself a little surf disco under a gigantic full moon. Who needs to pay high bar tabs at classy clubs?

Seriously, why dress up when you can dress down and get down to the sound of the ocean – which you won’t be able to do, actually, for another 17 years. It’s literally the party of the decade!

Whatever your situation might be, whether you’re kama’aina-local/native or malahini-tourist/visitor, please don’t miss the opportunity to capture a rare event that is sure to leave you gasping for that next breath, and longing for another dance under the full moon light.

When the Stars Align

Maybe not as rare as a perigee moon, but nonetheless as important, is obtaining your “dream home” where all the stars and moon have aligned, as if this very house was meant for you – and only you.

It can be a long, hard search and well worth the wait, but when it comes, are you or will you be ready for it? Have you taken the proper steps to be ready for this rare occurrence? Have you saved up the money for a deposit? Do you need a deposit? Is your credit score high enough? Are you pre-approved and can say, “This is my time! My turn! My dream – and I’m gonna capture it!”?

These are some of the things that run through our heads every time we see a house that triggers that “giddy” feeling that gets you all flustered for the rest of the day wondering, “Did I just pass by my dream home?” Why don’t I just see what I qualify for? Well, the honest truth most likely is: “Maybe next time!” is the answer.

But just like the supermoon, these dream homes don’t always align with our schedules, so we have to make it apart of us to be prepared. Contacting a good agent who can refer you to a lender that is reliable and trustworthy is an important preparation for finding your new home – unless you want to pay cash!

If something is rare enough that you can only experience it once or twice in a lifetime, I think it’s worth the risk of at least giving it a try.
