Biggest and Brightest

WestportNow.com Image
Friday night’s full moon, as seen from Westport’s Compo Beach, was said to be the biggest and brightest full moon of the entire year. As the first full moon of 2010, it is also known as the wolf moon from days long ago when hungry wolves howled at the full moon on cold winter nights. It was the biggest and brightest because this moon’s path around the earth made it about 14 percent wider and 30 percent brighter than lesser full moons of the year, according to Spaceweather.com.
