Tonight's full moon!

There will be a full moon tonight. I always love looking at it and will do so tonight.

However, tonight's moon will appear larger than usual because, for this full moon, the moon is the closest to the earth in its orbit. I can't wait to go outside and enjoy the sight.

I did notice that the moon seemed larger than normal last night, thanks for that Katie. That might explain somewhat why they are evacuating people from the low lying islands north of us up around New Guinea. The king tides combined with a large ocean swell is swamping some of the islands.

The farmers will be happy though, their produce keeps growing in these moonlight nights.

Katie thank you for the reminder. Its too cold here for "porch time" but I'll go out and take a look anyway!

I used to call my sis and tell her to go look at the moon so we could "see" each other. Think its time to get the phone. :)
