Super Moon Tonight!

The biggest moon of the year will occur tonight at 11:34 ET. Earlier for those out West. And you better watch out because who knows what kind of havoc will occur in combination with those celebrating Cinco De Mayo. I'm staying home! LOL.

 

Here's a good video from NASA explaining what makes the moon 14% bigger tonight.

Was a pretty amazing site. Beautiful clear night here in Dallas area.

I'll bet it was great to see.  Many of the clouds were blocking our view here in SE Michigan.  I could tell it was really bright though.  But it wasn't quite the same as actually seeing how big it was.

It was really big here, in TX! :smileyvery-happy:

 

I was going to take a photo while on the road, but didn't get a chance.
