Posts Tagged ‘perigee’

I now interrupt my not-at-all-planned blog vacation week (moving stuff, traveling, working, moving more stuff, more working) with this announcement:

Tonight is the best night to see a perigee full moon in 2014! That’s when the moon is not only full, but as close to us (Earth and its -lings, that is) as possible. Sure, supermoons seem to be a dime a dozen this year but tonight the view of our celestial sidekick will truly be Super. Becoming full at the same hour as perigee, the moon will appear 14% larger and 30% brighter than normal. That’s about as impressive as it comes.
