Special moon this weekend
On my drive home from work, the radio was discussing the full moon this weekend (May 5-6th specifically). On Saturday, the moon will be the closest it will be for more than a year and appear 16% larger and 30% brighter for North American audiences. Apparently, having a full moon during this close swing period (what the radio called it) is fairly uncommon and might provide some good pictures. My local weather forecast is for 100% cloud cover but thought someone else could take advantage of this.
