The Biggest Supermoon in Years is Coming Saturday Night

Quote:
This Saturday evening, take a look at the night sky and you might see something special. The moon will make its largest, most stunning appearance of the year—an event known to scientists as “the perigee-syzygy of the Earth-Moon-Sun system” and to the popular skywatching public simply as the “supermoon.” As one of the most spectacular supermoons in years, the moon will appear 14 percent bigger and 30 percent brighter than when it is on the far side of its orbit.

Thank goodness you posted that quoted section. For a minute there I thought maybe you were planning to drop trou' on us.

Actually, I just got in from taking the dogs for a late night walk and noticed that the moon, though not full yet, was looking pretty spectacular tonight. I'll have to make sure and have a look Saturday night.

It all depends on the weather whether it's seen or not, the way our weathers been lately might be too much cloud to see anything.

That would suck to miss such an awesome moon over in aussieville aka Australia we have a High Pressure system keeping everything clear so we will definitely be seeing that moon.

Sort of reminds me of an old Outer Limits episode, in which a scientist determined that super nova or solar flare had struck the Earth on the far side, by looking at the moon's size and brightness (much larger and brighter than this), and spent the night preparing for the end of the Earth. He was wrong, because after an extreme storm, everything was flooded.
