Perigee moon 14% bigger and 30% brighter as it passes closer to Earth

Filed under: Nature — admin @ 12:45 am

Yesterday morning, as early as 3 AM, I had the good luck of seeing this year’s perigee moon when I helped packing the car for another adult to head for Houston, Texas. It was absolutely bigger and brighter than normal one, making the night so unlike a night time.

At the moment like this, I wish I had a good camera or I could capture the scene or I knew how to use a good one. Too bad I didn’t, so I have to borrow one by Darryl Webb/Reuters.
