    Oh wow! Nice info, thanks!

    We did notice the moon last night...will be sure to check it out tonight. I hope we are able to see some of the meteor shower too.

    It's been overcast here all day so I'm not very hopeful. :(

    Going to be clear here in VA..but don't get too excited. 14% larger isn't that much. Moon is about 2 degrees of arc or so...that means that normally your little finger will just about block out the whole moon when at arm's distance. You might see a bit more around your pinky tonight.

    Reminds me of the many emails I got when Mars was particulary close in its orbit. There was an email that freaked out people saying that Mars would look bigger than the moon on a particular night. They neglected to tell you that you needed to look through a pretty good telelscope to see a larger version of Mars.
