In astronomical terms, we're about to get up close and personal with our moon - SUPER CLOSE, one might say.
At perigee,the moon is about 14 percent closer than when it's at its farthest point from Earth, which will make it appear 14 percent bigger in the sky - hence, it'll also shine about 30 per cent more light onto us. Once it gets high in the sky, then its like a huge light that's been turned on - even somewhere dark, you won't need a flashlight to even read. I shall check this out for myself tomorrow evening. I am not sure exactly where I shall watch, but I know a spot out in Oak Bay that may work. Regardless, I am looking forward to catching some of this "bright light" in the dark of the night. Hope some of you get to enjoy it as well. Cheers,
