Biggest and brightest full moon



 

Tonight's full moon


will be the biggest and brightest full moon of the year. It offers anyone with clear skies an opportunity to identify easy-to-see features on the moon.
*
This being the first full moon of 2010, it is also known as the wolf moon, a moniker dating back to Native American culture and the notion that hungry wolves howled at the full moon on cold winter nights.
*
As a bonus, Mars will be just to the left of the moon tonight. Look for the reddish, star-like object.
*
Finally, be sure to get out and see the full moon as it rises, right around sunset. Along the horizon, the moon tends to seem even bigger. This is just an illusion.

When we experience the beauties of nature, we always learn about ourselves....
