Tonight, The Biggest, Brightest Full Moon of 2008!

Good Morning SuperForest!

SuperForester Casey just alerted us to a tasty fact:

If you get a chance tonight, go outside and look at the moon.

"Although a full moon happens every month, the one that rises tomorrow will appear about 30 percent brighter and 14 percent larger than the other full moons seen so far this year.

That's because our cosmic neighbor will be much closer than usual. The moon will be at its closest perigee—the nearest it gets to Earth during its egg-shaped orbit around our planet."

-Andrew Fazekas at National Geographic

Sweet! Big, bright moon.

Go and look at it with your sweetie.
