Awesome Moon to Fill the Sky Saturday
Saturday night we will be getting up close and personal with the moon.
It will be 14 percent bigger than other moons, and 30 percent brighter. The big grey rock will be closer to earth than any other time this year.
Sometimes we forget, if it wasn't for the sun, the moon would be a big dull, dark planet -- just a big ball of moldy cheese for sure.
If in fact the moon is going to be 14 percent bigger on Saturday, you would think with a good set of binoculars we would be able to see the junk we left up there: the moon rover, old capsule parts, empty beer bottles, or the American flag the fellas left, right?
You know why we can't see any of that stuff? Because we never landed on the moon.
That whole thing was filmed in an old barn in Goober County, Alabama. Look, if Neil Armstrong was the first man to walk on the moon, who was running the camera that took the video of him stepping out of the lunar orbiter. What? did they shoot the camera up the week before, and tell the guys to land close to it so we can get some good footage. That space craft they were in wasn't made by NASA, if you look close you can read the word,'Winnebago' on the side of it. Lee Harvey Oswald the lone shooter, Bigfoot, Loch Ness monster, and the death of Elvis, and men landing on the moon are some of the greatest hoaxes of all time.
Enjoy the big moon, it should be real pretty, but remember this is the closest we will ever get to the big ole rock.
