Shoot for the Moon!

Alright, readers...now's the time to get ready to get your "capturing the coolness" freakness on....Tomorrow night's full moon will be a super duper "perigee moon".  According to CNN US, the biggest in almost 20 years.

According to the NASA website, the moon will  14% bigger and 30% brighter.  Another interesting phenomenon is that a full moon low hanging in the sky looks bigger when shot with a foreground object or between two foreground objects...such as between buildings or beaming through trees.  It's a phenomenon because even astronomers and psychologists cannot account for the effect..hmmm.
