The Night Sky Provides Another Treat
Written by Bwog Staff
Looking for a reason to get some fresh (cold) air tonight? According to Bwog jack-of-all-trades Jon Hill, tonight’s moon is in fact as large and bright as it will be in the next 15 years. NASA has estimated that the moon will be 14% bigger and 30% brighter than other full moons this year.
The phenomenon is the result of the full moon coinciding with the near-end of the moon’s elliptical orbit. And in case you were wondering, Fox News wants to assure you that “there is no proof the full moon makes people crazy.” There goes Bwog’s exam excuse.
Bwog’s Hawkmadinebwog editor Courtney Douds and Bwogger Sean Zimmerman did their best to get pictures (more high res photos after the jump), but we’d love to see your best images – send them in to [email protected]
UPDATE 12:35 AM: Dems VP Anna Brower sends in her shots, including a rather spooky one through the clouds.
