Did anyone notice how bright the full moon was on Saturday night? One could see outside very well without any other source of light, almost like daytime. It will be the biggest and brightest full moon of this year as the moon arrived at perigee (its closest point to Earth on its non-circular orbit) at distance of 221,577 miles. The first full moon of the year is known as the Wolf Moon. The most well-known full moon occurs in September, the Harvest Moon.
