Super Moon

According to the U.S. Naval Observatory, tonight's moon will appear 14% larger than normal because it is the closest it will be to earth in 2012. You can read the full story here

I remember being in a bus traveling toward Rochester New York years ago when I was in still in college, looking out the bus window, and literally gasping at how large the moon was rising behind the city skyscrapers.   It reminded me of the moon on the Honeymooner's.  (Anyone remember that show?)  I couldn't believe the other passengers on the bus weren't commenting in amazement about it.

Maybe that was the night of the super moon too.
