    Biggest Full Moon of 2012 Occurs This Week

    5/1/12

    This month's full moon coincides with the moon's closest approach to Earth.

    THE GIST
    This Saturday, the moon will come within 221,802 miles from Earth.

    This month's full moon is due to be about 16 percent brighter than average.

    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.

    Google it...:cool:
