Small Full Moon

The near full moon (full on Wednesday) is certainly beautiful, but did you notice how “small” it is? That’s because the moon is cycling near its apogee (farthest distance from the Earth at roughly 250,000 miles). The next lunar perigee is May 25 (closest distance to Earth at roughly 222,000 miles). Unfortunately, we won’t see it this month since the moon will new in its new phase.
