CLEVELAND - The moon will look bigger and brighter Saturday night.
The supermoon tonight will be the brightest and biggest of 2012.
May's full moon will be closest to the earth at around 11:35pm Saturday night. Under clear skies, the moon will look 14 percent bigger and 30 percent brighter. The moon will be about 31,000 miles closer to the earth than normal, too.
It looks like the forecast for northern Ohio may cooperate. Expect clear to partly cloudy skies Saturday night with 11:00 pm temperatures near 55. Keep in mind, as soon as it's dark enough, you'll be able to see the moon, you don't have to wait until 11:35, that's just when it will appear its brightest and largest.
And in case you can't seem to find the moon, look in the SE corner of the sky, and best to be away from lights to get the full effect.
