Full moon falls on tonight at 6:32 a.m. The moon appears about as full in the June 22 evening sky as it does on the evening of June 23. This full moon is not only the closest and largest full moon of the year. This will be the moon’s closest encounter with Earth for all of 2013. The moon will not be so close again until August, 2014. It’s not just a supermoon. It’s the closest supermoon of 2013.  Last month’s full moon (May 24-25, 2013) was also a supermoon. But the June full moon is even more supermoon! Here is why . . . .  the time of full moon falls even closer to the time of perigee, (the moon’s closest point to Earth). The moon’s full phase and perigee, fall within an hour of each other.  Cool moon viewing.
As for the Summer weather . . . . . nothing really new . . . . . more highs near 88 to 94 and morning lows near 70.  Along with your typical hit and miss showers and storms.  Cool to see the supermoon to give a little excitement to the world of weather and space.
