On the news today they said that last night and tonight the moon would look bigger than usual. This is because tonight the moon will make its closest approach to earth in 18 years. This event is what astronomers call a "perigean full moon." While driving around last night we had noticed that the moon did seem unusually bright. Now we know why! The moon was visible for a bit tonight and indeed, it was big and brilliant! But before I could capture a shot, it dashed back behind the clouds, showing no sign of returning. I was bummed at having to resort to clip art to illustrate my post, but then I realized that we all look at the same moon, so it should be amazing where you live as well. So here's hoping that you had clear skies and a chance to see it, too!
