Moon's bigger!

december 12, 08 friday
Was out with Husband J and good friend Robbie tonight, and was told that "the moon is bigger tonight".


Tonight, the moon moved out of its orbit by 10%, therefore it is closer to earth than usual, so it appears bigger. The last "big moon" was sighted some 15 years ago. And the ocean must be very choppy tonight too - great night for fishing out crabs and prawns!! Not that I am anywhere near the sea to do so!!

The moon does appear larger tonight, and brighter. It was awesome!! So beautiful!!
