Tonight’s moon will be a super perigee moon (a close approaching full moon). The moon is predicted to appear 15% bigger and 30% brighter than normal, according to NASA. Also, it is expected to be a rare event — the biggest in almost 20 years; next in 2029. That whole “once in a blue moon” thing only happens every two-and-a-half years.
The best time to view the moon will be near sunset. A low-hanging moon looks larger just over the horizon due to an optical illusion (e.g. when behind trees and buildings).
It’s no wonder things have felt slightly off lately. What do you think?
