Saturday 1/9/2009: Biggest Full Moon of the Year!

2010 Update: The biggest moon of the year – also called “The Wolf Moon” by some Native Americans – already happened. It was Friday night, January 29, 2010. I saw it driving home from work, in a midnight blue sky. It was beautiful! A recent article is: here.

Update:
Link is here to  story with photo of the full moon of Saturday, January 9th.

With all the sadness in the world… at least there is something hopeful and magical to think about tonight…

Tonight’s (Jan 9, 2009) moon will rival last month’s massive bright perigee
Ivan Oransky

Remember last month’s massive moon, the one that dazzled onlookers on December 12? That moon was 14% larger and 30% brighter than a typical full moon.

Well, it’s back tonight. NASA says tonight’s moon will be the biggest full moon of 2009, “almost identical” to the one on December 12…

  1. Note: The Wilders were all romantic and went outside at 11:00pm to try to see the moon from their courtyard. Unfortunately, the whole sky was gray with clouds. There was not a star in the sky. And, no vision of the moon. Maybe next time…(Would love reports from anyone who actually got to see it. Maybe I will google news and look for images from around the country…)-KW
