When the moon hits your eye... // reminder

don't forget, tonight the moon will be lower (at it's peak) than it has been in over ten years (almost twenty). This means that the "large moon" illusion will be somewhat longer in duration than it normally is. Further, it is a full moon. so the illusion will be thus pronounced. End result, there will be a nice huge moon on the horizon tonight around 8:50ish (for us sactown folk) that should sit there for a nice while.
