Supermoon! The somewhat rare occurence when the full moon lines up with the moon's perigee (or closest approach to Earth.) In the night sky, the moon will seem about 12% larger in diameter, and will be about 30% brighter.

Although there is a rainstorm here, the moon peeked out tonight on our way home, and we caught a glimpse. And yes, it did indeed seem bigger!

My song Cool Dudes on my album Body and Soul was inspired by the Supermoon of 2011. It seemed like an interesting thing to trigger a song over... it is just such a cool word, Supermoon. Cooler than perigee moon, at any rate!
