Not really a tech story here but I just thought it was cool. Tomorrow night, there will be what’s really being called “an extreme supermoon”. It’s the closest the moon will have been to the earth in 18 years and it’s a full moon, which means that the moon will be 10-15% bigger than it normally is. You might think this is only of interest to werewolf-Americans but when you think about it, what’s of interest to werewolf-Americans matters quite a bit to those of us not wanting to get bit.
