March 20th's Big Full Moon- You Have to Be Up Early

Full Moon as seen from Adelaide, Australia at 4:40 am Sunday March 20. Similar views will be see from elsewhere in Australia at the equivalent local time (click to embiggen).

Just a reminder to those Australians who want to catch the Full Moon at its biggest since 2008/1993/1992, you have to be up EARLY.

The Moon is Full (astronomical definition) and closest at 5:10 am AEDST, 4:40 am ACDST and 2:10 am AWST. If you wait for moonrise on the evening of the 20th, it will be smaller (in fact, smaller than at moonrise on the 19th). Not that you will actually be able so see minute fractions of arc minute differences.
