Tonight, December 12th, I understand, will be the largest full moon of the year. It will appear largest when it first comes up this evening around sunset.
If you think the moon is beautiful like I do, get out there tonight and have a look-see!

I just saw on the news that it will be 14% larger and 30% brighter based on it's rotation location or something like that...LOL.

The full moon during the winter is my fav, I'll spend a few mins bundling up and going out with my dog for a quick walk to enjoy mother natures nite lite.

News about this subject.

Friday perfect for dancing in the moonlight.

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- It won't be your imagination if the moon looks bigger and brighter Friday night, like "a cosmic flood lamp."

Thank you for posting this, Kay. I had forgotten that it's "full moon" night. I'm heading back outside to take a peek now.

I took the dog out last night to go potty. There was fresh snow on the ground but the sky had cleared up and was nothing but stars and moon. I noticed what I thought were trails in the snow in my yard. I tried to follow them. They all led to the base of an oak tree. It was shadows from the bare branches caused by the light of the moon. I'd never seen that before in my yard.
The snow looked like it had little diamonds in it. Sure was pretty. I looked up. Saw the biggest brightest moon I think I have ever seen. A clear sky in my part of the country during this time of year is very rare. Sure was a pretty sight.
