KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The biggest and brightest full moon of the year arrives Saturday night as our celestial neighbor comes closer to Earth than usual.
At 10:34 p.m. Central Time, the moon will be about 221,802 miles from Earth, or according to the Associated Press, about 15,300 miles closer than average.
Expect the moon to appear about 14 percent bigger, although officials with the U.S. Naval Observatory say it may be difficult to tell the difference.
