If skies are clear Saturday, go out at sunset and look for the giant moon rising in the east. It will be the biggest and brightest one of 2009, sure to wow even seasoned observers.
It will appear about 14 percent bigger in our sky and 30 percent brighter than some other full moons during 2009, according to NASA. (A similar setup occurred in December, making that month's full moon the largest of 2008.)

Heres the link to my flickr page. These are some of the shots as the moon rose over the treeline and behind the clouds in Texas. Sorry some are a little blurry, shaky tripod.
