Chasing The Moon

Tonight brings us a special full moon. It's gonna be the biggest and brightest full moon we've seen in a hundred years. You can catch it around sunset as it first starts to peep on the horizon. It's gonna look absolutely huge.

For moon chasers like me and Jason, it's gonna be an exciting night as we jump in the car and... chase the moon. Sometimes it beats us, and has risen too high before we get the chance to snap the perfect pic. Other times the clouds envelope it and it's a wipe out. We've been hoping all week that tonight just might bring us the perfect sky.

Right now though, it's a gloomy and wet morning out there. Looking at the weather forecast for tonight, it looks like we're probably gonna have to chase the sky too. It won't be the first time we've hopped across a few states in search of the perfect moon.  Jason's checking the weather station stats with his breakfast. My adrenaline is running already. The moon chase is on!

*The moon in the pic is the Cardinal Moon we chased back in July 2010. If you click on it, you'll see it much closer up.

So, moon chasing sounds super romantic. Is it?
