Moon at annual perigee this weekend ? The Register
Hopefully we'll get clear skies tomorrow :)Quote:
If you stumble out of the pub this weekend and the moon appears unusually large, there's no need to swear off the strong stuff.
Instead, contemplate the wonder that is Lunar perigee, the moment at which the moon approaches closer to Earth than on any other day of the year.
This year's perigee takes place on May 5th and 6th, when our sole satellite will approach to within 356,953 km of the Earth
