Want to hear something a little spooky? At the stroke of midnight EDT, tomorrow night, the Moon will cuddle up to Earth as close as it will get during 2012, just twenty-five minutes after it becomes full. The combination of the two events will make for a little lunar buddy that will be shining approximately sixteen percent brighter, and you know what that means? Supermoon!
Prepare the silver bullets and, perhaps, a romantic evening picnic basket.
