The biggest full moon of 2011 is happening Saturday night, caused by a phenomenon that brings the moon closer to the Earth. Some have already begun calling it a “supermoon.”
Saturday at 3 p.m. the moon will be at its close
st point to the Earth in 2011. Before it moves closer; 221,565 miles away from the Earth to be specific, it will officially be full.
At its largest, it will appear 14 percent bigger and 30 percent brighter than other full moons.
