Lunar Perigee

The moon has come as close as it gets to the Earth tonight (19th March 2011) Perigee. This means that the full moon appears 14% larger [^] and 30% brighter than normal, the largest full moon we have had since March 1993. Luckily here in Melbourne we were blessed with a clear sky, but the mosquitoes were biting well!
