Apogee and perigee refer to the distance from the Earth to the moon. The furthest point from Earth is apogee; the closest point is perigee. Tonight’s perigee is the closest this year and will be 30 percent brighter than the average full moon and 14 percent larger. In addition, your coastal interests Sunday morning will find unusually higher tides even into Monday and Tuesday. Moonrise tonight will occur at 7:36 p.m. and at 10:35 p.m. you will enjoy what is referred to as a “supermoon.” A low hanging moon appears incredibly large as it hovers near trees, buildings and foreground objects and a closer moon tonight will amplify the supermoon. American Indians designated the full moon in May as the “Full Flower Moon” because of the midpoint of spring. Fastcast: Sticky.
