Thread: Boar & fox shooters - prepare yourselves!

    Boar & fox shooters - prepare yourselves!

    The world is set to experience the biggest full moon for almost two decades when the satellite reaches its closest point to Earth next weekend.

    On 19 March, the full moon will appear unusually large in the night sky as it reaches a point in its cycle known as 'lunar perigee'.


    Stargazers will be treated to a spectacular view when the moon approaches Earth at a distance of 221,567 miles in its elliptical orbit - the closest it will have passed to our planet since 1992.


    The full moon could appear up to 14% bigger and 30% brighter in the sky, especially when it rises on the eastern horizon at sunset or is provided with the right atmospheric conditions.

    BTW: This full moon, (the last of winter), is known by the names Lenten Moon (English Christian), or Worm Moon, Chaste Moon, Sap Moon and Death Moon (Native American). Take your pick!

    Watch out for very big tides 2 days after, if we get a lot of rain could be messy

    Should have added that it's also known as the Mithering Moon in some regions!

    (Let's all hope it's a clear night).
