Beginning at 11:35pm EDT on Saturday (May 5), the moon will be full and will also look its biggest as it will all year. For some of you, this is not a result of any drugs or drinking, it’s actually that big.
This full moon phase coincides with its closest distance from the Earth, 221,802 miles, and will give anyone and everyone a spectacular view of a giant and bright moon. In fact astronomers call it a “super moon”.
