I wish the blessing / of clear skies on all who seek / the perigee moon.

The perigee moon is a very special full moon – often called a “super moon” – which appears 14% larger than normal, due to being closer to Earth at the time of perigee, than at other times in normal lunar cycles.  The perigee moon visits infrequently – it is wonderful and breathtaking – not to be missed!

NOTE: this photograph is NOT of a perigee moon, but rather a “waxing gibbous” or “waning gibbous” moon (can’t remember which it was at the time)…offered as inspiration to run out and get a telescope or long lens for your camera, to view and capture tonight’s beautiful moon! (if the clouds relent)…
