On Dec. 12-13th, 2008 night the Moon becomes full and has the closest distance from earth. In the language of astronomy called "perigee" (nearby). This made it 14% bigger and 30% brighter than lesser full Moons we've seen earlier in 2008.
The moon in the above photo has been blended with the Bangkok night scene for pleasure, since just the moon only can't tell the size, the brightness and the place which was taken. How is it?:)
