Super Moon this Saturday

For all the science geeks out there (and you know who you are), remember that this Saturday is Supermoon - a full moon that occurs when the moon is at perigee, the point on its orbit when it's closest to Earth.  Should be about 30% brighter than your standard moon, and well worth the look.  Bonus: if you get a picture when it's close to the horizon, the optical illusion of having it near buildings will make it seem even bigger.

This science geek is going to try to steal some pictures of it over Richmond.  If you have any good ones, please share!
