Natural Phenomenon ( Brightest Moon Saturday) Astronomy

   Look up to the sky!!!   You'll see the moon at is brightest point in two decades.

      The moon is expected to be so bright that some sky watchers have dubbed it a "supermoon." Not only is it a full moon, but the moon is very near to perigee, the point in its orbit that is closest to Earth.
   The moon will be 14 percent bigger and 30 percent brighter than the usual full moons that are further from earth tend to appear. 

     Although perigee brings the moon 31,000 miles closer to Earth than when the moon is its farthest point from the earth -- apogee -- it still will be 221,000 miles away on Saturday night, according to NASA. 

                         So look out from your window or maybe go out and enjoy this spectacular view 
                                                                 that god give us . :)
