Tonight’s the Super Moon!

Tonight, a full Moon of rare size and beauty will rise in the east at sunset. It’s a super perigee moon, the biggest in almost 20 years.

The tides will be higher & the moon will be 14% bigger than normal!

The moon is so close because it falls on the same day as perigee, the moon’s closest point to the earth for this month.

I hope your skies are clear and you can manage to get to a place where the moonrise can be seen.
