    Thumbs up 'Supermoon' Alert: Biggest Full Moon of 2012 Occurs This Week

    Skywatchers take note: The biggest full moon of the year is due to arrive this weekend.


    The moon will officially become full Saturday (May 5) at 11:35 p.m. EDT. And because this month's full moon coincides with the moon's perigee its closest approach to Earth it will also be the year's biggest.


    The moon will swing in 221,802 miles (356,955 kilometers) from our planet, offering skywatchers a spectacular view of an extra-big, extra-bright moon, nicknamed a supermoon.

    Perigee full moon = eye candy.

    Hope it's not cloudy here - and where you all are too.

    I just looked and were going to have some lovely weather on Saturday. I think my husband will have to go for a walk on the beach with me.

    I hope that it's going to be clear at my place...what a gorgeous sight these moons are. I would love to sit out on the back porch and watch it rise...just me and my pups.

    OTOH, it's going to be a nasty weekend for ERs...full moons always are, and weekends (partying) and nice weather (being outside) will make for some intense times. I'm just hoping that no natural disaster (eq, volcano) responds to perigee...

    When you find yourself in the position to help somebody, do not feel burdened. Rather, feel happy and blessed because God is answering that person's prayer through you. In that moment, you are God's Angel - His door to reach through and bring light to someone who is struggling in the darkness.

    Be God's Light. Be God's love. Be an answered prayer. Be God's Door.

    Bumping as a reminder for tomorrow:

    On Saturday, the moon will be up to 14 percent bigger and 30 percent brighter than the other full moons of 2012, according to NASA.

    Bump! reminder. Moon rises in Tulsa at 8:08 p.m. and I'm using that fact as a sort of mantra, chanting it to myself so I don't forget to go outside and see the perigee.

    Hope your skies are cloud free!
