Tonight: There's a Super Moon on the Rise

Tonight's full moon will appear 14% larger and 30% brighter than usual. Although the moon reached fullness last night, tonight (weather permitting) we have the opportunity to see it rise above the horizon, when the moon appears largest to the naked eye.

You can find the moonrise time for your location here. In the USA, moonrise will be sometime between 9:00 p.m. and 10:00 p.m., depending on altitude.
