Tonight, June 18th - is the Solstice Moon. For those living in Chester County, PA , the ideal time for the show will happen at moonrise which will be between 8:07 and 8:15. What will you see? As the moon starts to appear in the horizon it's gonna look HUGE! Now this is important people - do not panic. I can't stress this enough.
Just like the old "got your nose" trick, the large moon is just an illusion. In fact, even photos of the solstice moon don't show a moon that is larger than average. Huh? I'm still going to try my own experiment by throwing a rock at it. If the rock does hit the moon, then I think some people are going to have a little bit of explaining to do.
