Wolf moon!

So, last night I bolted awake because of a bright flashlight in my eyes, which turned out to be the moon, shining through my closed blinds and curtains. The moon: second-pushiest celestial body.

Turns out this website about space agrees with me; tonight is the "wolf moon," the biggest full moon of the year, something something perigee something.

(I'm ashamed how little I know about astronomy; for someone who stays up as late as I do, I should probably look out the window a little more often. Apologies to Heather, who knows all sorts about the moon and is probably ashamed of my ignorance. I promise to learn, Heather!)

Just for kicks, I checked outside earlier. For anyone who was worried, the moon is looking just fine.
