Because of its elliptical orbit and proximity to the earth, Saturday's full moonrise is expected to appear just about as large as it ever gets, a perigee moon. If you don't check it out, you'll have to wait until 2029 for another chance.<br><br><a href="http://www.cnn.com/2011/US/03/18/nasa.moon/index.html?hpt=C2" target="_blank">http://www.cnn.com/2011/US/03/18/nas...ex.html?hpt=C2</a>

Can't wait to see it! I did get to sit outside on the patio and enjoy the beautiful weather last night. The moon was very bright and when the clouds covered it up, there was the rainbow effect all around the edge of the clouds.

Note to self: do not bring up big moon with ex and then say 'well I'll show you a big moon cos I've got buttless jeans on'.

I'm glad I caught a glimpse of it last night. It's raining here, and I doubt it'll clear up at this point. *sigh*<br><br>
Mercury is dancing around with Jupiter too, and I can't see that either. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/bigcry.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":cry:">

Will have to keep an eye out. Not sure we're going to get the necessary clear sky, though. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":(">

It was incredible. I noticed it on Thursday night and made MrSchu go out and look at it. Last night it was even more amazing!

I just went and looked at it. It's very pretty, but I cannot say that it looks 14% bigger.<br><br>
