The Moon is now at its closest point to Earth on its rotation — at its perigee — and looks about 12 per cent larger than it will next January, when it's at its apogee, the farthest turn from Earth.
Watch for high tides to follow if you live by the shore, not high here in the dry lands, where only rivers rise... (And rise with sudden vengeance.)
What is this? The closest - and biggest - full moon of the year.
Location: Backyard, Regina, Saskatchewan.
