This Saturday's full moon will be a 'super moon'; meaning that the moon will be the closest to the Earth all year. National Geographic says, "The moon's proximity won't have any major effects on our planet..." apparently they've never been on St Thomas during a 'normal' full moon - I'm a little curious how this Saturday evening will be:)
Diana on Express-O say's this extraordinary event will occur at exactly 11:35 pm ET. I hope we'll all be watching it together.
PS A 'normal' moonrise from my porch here.
