Apogee (mini) Full Moon September 13-14, 2019

Full Moon September 14, Apogee -  15hFull Moon February 19, Perigee -   6h

The Moon is at apogee on midnight, Friday, September 13, making the September Full Moon a mini-Moon. The Moon is officially full on the 14th at 3pm, but the Moon does not rise until 5:11 pm, so it will be a little bigger than a proper apogee full Moon. It will nice to compare this with the 20 February perigee "super" Moon (telescopic simulation above, but you can see previous apogee/perigee pairs here and here.)
