Is it a bird? Is it a plane? Is it made of cheese?

So this weekend, The “Man of Steel” movie hits the theaters, but ol’ Clark Kent isn’t the only thing worth looking up to the heavens for this weekend.

This weekend’s full moon is considered a perigee moon because it occurs when our moon is at its closest point in the elliptical orbit around the Earth.  I know, cool right?  What that means is the moon will look 14% LARGER when you look at it, especially if you catch it as it rises or sets.  So what are you waiting for?  This Saturday and Sunday, break out those smart phones, cameras or just get out and enjoy the night air.  You won’t be able to see the next perigee moon until August 2014.
