“Super Moon” Visits Earth Saturday Night

posted on Friday, May 4th, 2012 at 1:23 pm

Sky watchers across the country will get a special treat this Saturday night. The moon will be full as it reaches its closest point in its orbit around the Earth. Scientists call this a Super Moon because it appears 14 % larger than normal.

Scientists will be capturing numerous pictures of the event. Here in New Orleans, the moon will be full at 10:36 pm. For best viewing, if you’re enjoying a few Cinco De Mayo cocktails, stay up and catch the best show when the moon sets between 3 and 4am.

This weekend is going to be HOT!, especially across the deep South.
