As It Stands blog: Let’s Celebrate Lunar Largness tonight!

    Good Day World!

The biggest, brightest full moon of the year shines in the sky tonight and Sunday night (at it’s closest), which makes this the perfect time to take in the wonders of the night sky — whether or not you're swept up in the "supermoon" hype.Some say the supermoon ranks as "one of the biggest celestial events of the year."

The moon itself is the same size it's been for ages, but the key is how close it'll be when it's full.June's full moon starting tonight,is the headliner because it's this year's best example of the "perigee full moon."

Tides will be stronger than usual, but that's nothing to get alarmed about.The fact that this full moon takes place so soon after Friday's summer solstice adds an extra twist…this will be the lowest-down full moon of 2013.

Time for me to walk on down the road…
