COPY-Supermoon This Weekend!

This weekend the moon will make its closest pass to earth of the year.

 It's known as the Perigee full moon, and it's the largest of the half-dozen super moons that occur every year.  So basically it's the most SUPER of the Supermoons this year. 

This weekend's moon will be about three miles closer to the earth than usual and because of how close it is you can expect higher and lower tides on the coastlines this weekend.
