So you may all know by now I kind of have a "thing" for the moon. Last night, the full moon rose at 7:37pm. I had already wanted to go outside and watch it rise, but it was sealed when I learned from NASA that it would be a rare "super moon", happening once every 18 years or so. Apparently, the moon will occasionally be closer than usual to the Earth during it's orbit, but rarely will it be closer when it's full. This coincidence made the moon appear 14% larger than usual.
