Forget Super Bowl Sunday. Supermoon Saturday is gonna be a way bigger deal, mark my words! I'll explain: Astronomers call it a 'supermoon' when a full moon happens at the same time the moon is orbiting closest to the earth. Because the moon looks about 16% bigger and 30% brighter than usual, non-astronomers who happen to be outside after dark usually just call it a 'Holy #$&*! The moon is attacking us!'
Anyway, this year's supermoon is just days away (Saturday, May 5, at 11:35 p.m.), and since a supermoon is basically a full moon on steroids, that means you can expect one hell of a wild weekend. Yes, seriously. Remember the Creedence Clearwater Revival song?
