Sky Guy Viewing ALERT - SMALLEST Full Moon for 2014 1-15-14

Hey Space Placers!

The smallest Full Moon for 2014 occurs tonight, 1-15-14 at 11:52 p.m. EST. The Full Moon will be at the farthest apogee (greatest distance) from Earth for the year at 9:00 p.m. EST at a distance of 406,532km or 243,919mi.

You probably will not be able to detect any size or light difference by the unaided eye. I was planning on photographing the Full Wolf Moon - the name the American Indian tribes gave January's Full Moon due to the roaming packs of hungry wolves - but clouds will cover VA with MORE rain - the ground is SQUISHY we've had so much rain!

Enjoy the view and check out bright Jupiter in the vicinity. Here's my pic of them last night:
