Tonight's Full Moon Is Super!
Tonight there will be an extra special full moon. It's called a "supermoon" because the moon will appear 14% larger and 30% brighter compared to other full moons. This is because the moon will be at it's perigee, the closest to the earth in it's orbit.
Supermoon: When & Where To See It Best TONIGHT
Of course the full moon brings out the beasties and baddies. Witches are believed to be at their most powerful during a full moon. Werewolves transforms into their beastly forms and prowl the wild places. All manner of spooks and nasties will be active. And then there is the normal human weirdness. Some claim the full moon causes all kinds of weird human behavior, anything from madness (lunacy), the increase of women going into labor, and calls to 911 and the police. That other form of madness inspired by the moon is referred to as "romance". Creatures of the night, unite!
