View the Supermoon tonight

Wow! Did you know that tonight, 23rd of June 2013, the full Moon will be at its closest point to Earth of the entire year? It’s known as a perigee syzygy Moon and will appear about 12% larger in diameter than usual.

It’s happening just two days after the Summer Solstice so it’s also a ‘solstitial Moon’ and visually it’ll make this the lowest-down full Moon of 2013.

Since lower Moons tend to be orangey yellow or amber in colour, this should give us a true ‘honey moon’ all night long.

You can view it anywhere but we’re planning to view it from Largs Bay with a traditional glass of Moniack Mead in hand, otherwise known as: ‘Honeymoon Mead!’
