Shine on, Supermoon

Tonight's the night of the supermoon, when our God-given satellite is at perigee, or closer to the earth in its elliptical orbit than usual. First time in 18 years and since there's nothing on TV and the local movie house is similarly devoid (although I could see Rango), we'll be setting up shop in the golf course parking lot and watching, camera on tripod, remote in hand.

The moon will look bigger and be brighter. The bigger part is being played down, as "only" 15% bigger. Now, if I were only 15% bigger, I'd be bigger than I was with either pregnancy.

'Nuf said. That's bigger.
