2009’s Biggest Full Moon 

The full moon on Saturday, January 10, was touted by NASA as the “biggest and brightest one of 2009’’ The NASA statement continued to say that this
month’s full moon will appear about 14 percent and
30 percent brighter than some other full moons during 2009. At sunset, 5:01 p.m., the few people at Mt. Hawk Park in Chula Vista, a
site overlooking Otay Mountain and lower Otay Lakes, didn’t see
anything special. October’s full harvest
 has been seen rising to span two mountains in Otay. The harvest moon due this year on October 4 marks a rare full harvest moon — it won't
happen again until 2017.
