Catch the glorious spectacle of the "Super moon" this coming Saturday, May 5, 2012, as it rises from the east horizon at 8:34 PM Pacific time, or 11:34 PM Eastern time. [Pilipinas, please check your calendar to know the exact time of the full moon there :-) ]
During this time, the full moon will reach perigee -- the closest point to Earth in its elliptical pattern -- and "only one minute later, the moon will line up with the Earth and the sun to become gloriously full."
The moon will appear 14% larger than other full moons of 2012, and 30% brighter than the moon is when it is at "apogee" -- the farthest point in its elliptical orbit around the Earth.
The best time to watch? Just as it is rising from the east! It will appear largest when viewed behind trees or buildings!
Will people go crazy or howl like wolves? Hahaha!
Enjoy...and share pictures of this amazing show from heaven!
