Super Size the Moon Tonight

According to the zeppelin drivers of NASA, at 11:34 p.m. EDT tonight (8:34 PDT), the moon will be at the closest point in its orbit of earth, and will appear 14% larger than normal.
If it doesn't appear 14% larger to you, come back here for a 14% refund on what you paid for it.

  1. "Look at moon" was not on my list so I missed it.

    I need a better list.

    1. Just put "visit Proof Positive daily" on your list and we'll take care of the rest! Having said that, I viewed the "super moon" briefly last night. I couldn't detect any real difference in size, but it was a very bright full moon.

      In addition, I broke out my telescope while waiting for moonrise, and noticed that Venus was actually a crescent. It is supposed to transit the sun this month. Wear special protection or don't look.

  2. When did NASA launch Rosie O'Donnell into orbit?

    1. While it is true that Rosie's "moon" can be seen from space, the super moon observed last night was not hers!
