Skywatcher Alert - LUNA!

Tonight is a very full moon, in fact Luna will be the largest, brightest, closest moon we'll see all year.  Even a partial lunar eclipse for Europe, Africa and Asia, for anyone in those environs.  Isn't it amazing?  It's not usual to think of when moon-watching, but we're actually looking at the past, we're experiencing time in another form.  You won't miss this one, it'll block out all stars even remotely near. 

Maybe it's my Cancerian blood being moved about by the pull of the moon, but there's something very visceral that happens when I gaze at Luna Maria.  I feel almost paralyzed with a primative, perhaps ancestoral memory, one that haunts yet fascinates.  I know I'm looking at what my ancestors did, hiding in caves lighting fires to stay warm.  The moon is magic, can anyone doubt it?

The moon is amazing to look at, especially when it is as huge as it will appear tonight. Enjoy,

I LOVE your sky watch alerts. Except this time it was not needed. I don't believe I've ever seen the moon in greater splendor.

Cathie, yes and yes!... I was driving my car and I felt like there was something... but where... I realised the moon was full and quite big, more than usual or to my eyes it looked like closer... I am very affected by the moon, so it never avoid me and has to remind me it is there; I have to pay attention to it. Beautiful thing though...
