Look! Up in the sky! It’s Super Moon …
If the skies clear up Saturday night you could get a glimpse of the “super moon.” Saturday’s full moon will appear the largest it has in more than a year.
According to NASA, the scientific term for a “super moon” is perigee moon. The moon’s orbit is an elliptical shape, so it will look bigger because it is actually closer to the earth. The moon will reach perigee in Seattle at 8:34 p.m.
A minute later, the moon will brightly illuminate when it lines up with the Earth and Sun.
