All eyes to the sky on the Isle of Wight as tonight (March 19th), a full Moon of rare size and beauty will rise in the east at sunset.
It’s a super “perigee moon”- the biggest in almost 20 years.
On March 19th 2011, the supermoon or super perigee Moon will make its closest approach to Earth in almost 20 years, possibly triggering earthquakes, volcanic eruptions and other disasters.
More, to the point. The moon is about to be closer to the earth than it has been in 18 years. If any photographers fancy capturing this event, this might be an ideal opportunity to get as many high resolution images of the moon as you can.
I doubt there will be another opportunity like this for a long time.
