Super Moon Will Be Visible Over East Texas
Last night's moon was beautiful, but tonight's is expected to bigger and brighter still.
The moon will come within 222,000 miles of Earth early Sunday, and will turn full at around 6:30am Central time. It will look full prior to that, but the prime moment to view it will be at that time on Sunday.
The moon is going to look 14 percent bigger than it normally does, since it gets so close to the earth. It may not look that much bigger to the naked eye, but scientists with telescopes and others at technology-aided viewing points will be able to see the difference.
If you think the kids get wilder and people in general go a little nuts with a full moon, be prepared tonight! Scientists don't think there's anything to that...They say it's just "lunacy." But we beg to differ.
Have a great weekend!
