This year, Mars supersizes the view making the moon appear 30% brighter and over 14% larger than other moons.
Once ever 29.5 days, the moon makes a trip around Earth. But, its orbit is not a perfect circle, but more "elliptical". According to NASA, "It will appear about 14 percent bigger in our sky and 30 percent brighter than some other full moons during 2009."
