I hope you have been able to see the hugh full moon. It's quite rare and even though the moon comes this close to the earth each year most of the time it is not in it's full phase. I heard the next time this will happen is 2027. One of Mother Natures blessings. Enjoy

Well at least you could see it. I will not be able to see anything here. It is cloudy and will be like this until Friday. Horrible weather. We had better weather in April then we are now. I bet it looks real nice. Maybe you should take a picture of it.

I have not been out to see it, as we have had rain and clouds. I have seen some excellent pictures, though. I love it when the night sky just seems to wrap all around you.

well, i seen the moon when it was coming up it was a little biger deffiently brighter. Then, at 11:34 they said was the best time to look, it was brighter but, it was the same size as a normal moon. I dont understand it because, all the pics showed it to be big n orange and it wasnt so i was disapointed.

The moon always seems larger just as it rises and it's orange due to how we view it through our atmospher. I saw it the first night just at moon rise and it was a beauty. Thanks for your response
