Why are you posting here instead of taking your photo gear out to a nearby paddock and giving us some lunar pics what with the full moon being so close and ...oh, I just checked KY weather. Mostly cloudy.
Camera phone just doesn't do the trick.
Year's Biggest Full Moon in Skies Friday Night
Friday, December 12, 2008
By Robert Roy Britt
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.
Earth, the moon and the sun are all bound together by gravity, which keeps us going around the sun and keeps the moon going around us as it goes through phases. The moon makes a trip around Earth every 29.5 days. But the orbit is not a perfect circle.
The moon's average distance from us is about 238,855 miles (384,400 km). Friday night it will be just 221,560 miles (356,567 km) away.
It will be 14 percent bigger in our sky and 30 percent brighter than some other full moons during the year, according to NASA.
