Skywatchers take note: The biggest full moon of the year is due to arrive this weekend.
The moon will officially become full Saturday (May 5) at 11:35 p.m. EDT. And because this month's full moon coincides with the moon's perigee — its closest approach to Earth — it will also be the year's biggest.
The moon will swing in 221,802 miles (356,955 kilometers) from our planet, offering skywatchers a spectacular view of an extra-big, extra-bright moon, nicknamed a supermoon.

Doesn't this usually precipitate earthquakes?

Thank you for the heads-up usmc0311 !
It's always nice to take advantage of when the moon is at it's most beautiful.
I hope is isn't as cloudy as it's been recently where I'm at.
I've missed daylight Venus due the bothersome clouds.

Same topic different forum.edit on 30-4-2012 by lbndhr because: (no reason given)
