The closest full moon...maybe, the "biggest" ...no


The "harvest moons" were Wayyyyyyy bigger, (it looks absolutely huge), theoretically it's appearance should have been bigger, but it wasn't the "biggest" I've ever seen the moon. There are other factors in that besides distance and phase.

The size of the moon in the sky (to your mind) largely depends on how many reference objects are nearby. Have something close to the horizon that you know the size of (like a mountain) and the moon appears huge. When the moon is high, there is no reference objects, which is why it appears so small.

Looks around the same size.

Wish I could see the stars without having to drive 5 miles from where I live.

I personally think it looks a lot cooler just above the horizon much like the sunset.

I got to see it as soon the clouds passed by, feels like a werewolf moment However the moon is really really bright wow. Felt like Crysis at night lol. Wish i had a good camera. Amazing really. I hope i will see something like this again cuz i may consider investing in a telescope cuz i just simply love space.
