Tonight Biggest Full Moon of 2009
« on: January 10, 2009, 08:10:27 AM »

BIGGEST FULL MOON OF THE YEAR:  This weekend's full Moon is the biggest full Moon of the year. It's a "perigee Moon" as much as 14% wider and 30% brighter than lesser Moons we'll see later in 2009. Go out and look. Extra-bright moonlight.

May get a chance to see it if this storm system moves through fast enough.  Grin

Clearly visible here between around 1630 and 1700. Now lost in cloud.
Thanks to DaveH64 for mentioning it.

Nice sight up here but there was a light covering of high cloud all evening and that would have messed up any photos so I didn't bother.
