Cold Moon

December's full moon is always the biggest and brightest of the year, but tonight's will be extra special, with the closest lunar perigee since 1993, making it look 30 percent brighter and 14 percent larger than 2008's other full moons.

(The composite NASA photo above shows how different the size of the moon appears at perigee, the moon's closest point to the Earth, and apogee, its furthest position from us.) From National Geographic
