Don't forget to take a look at the moon tonight

Remember that the moon will be very close to earth tonight  and a full moon.

In London the moon will be rising late and overhead at around midnight. If you only have a view to the west (like me) you will need to wait until around 2:30 am Saturday morning.

I wrote a post earlier in the week about taking photos of it to compare the relative size of the moon during it’s orbit.

I tried to get my hands on a T Mount for my camera to take photos through my telescope but ran out of time so will have to make do with my trusty 300mm lens.

The BBC have written a story about the moon too. You can find the story at http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/sci/tech/7779294.stm.
