people on my news are saying the moon is closer today or something, but it doesn't look any bigger. I live in Oklahoma.
The news here said that the phenomenon is called perfect moon. it looks 14% bigger than regular fullmoon and 30% brighter. It is in the closest position to the earth.
It does seem like its at it's brightest point, and has the perfect clear look.
I could not either. It was even running last night here with us :-(
Aww..and I can't even see the moon tonight :( too cloudy..
