I just came in from the lake and the Moon is already amazing. I am on the East coast so the sun had set and I could see very well from the moonlight alone. Spectacular now....better tomorrow if it remains clear.
(sadly I only caught 1 crappie)

@baqui63: Is that the one where the girl he likes is called "Polly Purebread"? or something like that.

I thought that thing was tonight, which I still forgot. But I still looked outside the window.

Tomorrow is gonna be one crazy-ER Cinco De Mayo then!

@meems212:

Yes, though I (unconsciously) typo'd it as Wonderdog instead of Underdog.

The original theme song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9bdpyamRS4c

Another version I found which is interesting: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=73zpwWG0JQo

@baqui63: Haaaa, that's too funny. I read Underdog!!

listening to the theme song and realizing I never knew the words to the theme song.

I like the other version, it's nice =)

I'm wondering if it's related to superpacs? ;-)

Yes, I sure do plan on looking and hope to get some photos. But I've also been invited to a cinco de mayo party and may have difficulty with image stabilization. Or photographer stabilization. Something like that. lol

Happy supermooning to all!

I hate to be "that guy" but you really won't see anything spectacular with the naked eye. It's just not that big difference from a regular moon, and totally dwarfed by other perceptual factors such as the horizon effect. To actually see the difference, you'd need to see it alongside a regular moon -- say, by taking a photo tonight and again a few months from now and comparing side by side. If you think you're seeing a remarkable difference, well, that's just the triumph of expectations over perception.

The Bad Astronomer has a good write-up (as usual) for those who want the details.

For those who want a quick visual guide to what you'll see when you look up tonight:
