When the moon hits your eye like a big pizza pie ...

The moon will be at it closest and fullest it has been in 15 years.

 From the link: 

--------------------------------------------------------------------

Because the moon orbits along an egg-shaped ellipse, not a circle, its
distance from us changes. Today, the moon is approaching its nearest
point to Earth, so it should look about 14 percent bigger and 30
percent brighter than this year's other full moons, according to NASA.

It looks like it could be a pretty sight.

Conjunction Junction, What's Your Function?

You may have noticed, like Sara had long before I did, that there are two bright "stars" close together in the night's sky.  You probably figured that one was Venus -- and you'd be correct.  The other, though, is our largest planet: Jupiter.  And tonight, they'll both be joined with a crescent moon. 

If your skies are clear, check out the conjunction:
