The full moon Friday night will be the biggest one of the year as Earth's natural satellite reaches its closest point to our planet.

That means the tide will be very low tomorrow - I will have to go down to
the beach to see it.
I am just looking at the moon, so beautiful!

A composite picture, based on an image of the moon taken by the Galileo spacecraft, shows the apparent size differences between a full moon at perigee (the closest point in lunar orbit) and one at apogee (the farthest point), as seen from Earth.

On December 12, 2008, the full moon will be at an unusually close perigee, offering sky-watchers a view of the biggest and brightest full moon seen since 1993.

Wow, the biggest moon since 1993 - that is something. Gorgeous big full moon
last night. I took a picture, it's a bit blurry though...

@CalamityJane,
Wish I had had my camera, C.J. I watched it rise from the ocean then begin its descent in the northwest. It was hynotic.

Is there a correlation between this astronomical event and all the U.S. has to face in this new administration? Just a little superstitious!

Yes! Only 30+ days until a new moon. Only 37 days until a new administration.

@Region Philbis,
It's hard to believe, because of the size of the moon vs environment.
