Can't you see in the thread title, that I only requested people living in the northeast U.S. to go moon peeping?!?! just kidding! In fact, I am pretty ignorant about stargazing and related science. I know that the moon appears in different phases for different areas of the world, but I am not sure if that goes for longitude, latitude, or what. Perhaps this is just all in my imagination. And, yes, I can remember the moon being visible as a child, and the way it illuminated the snow blanketed ground. But this looks like it is powered light, the way the sun is powered light. It does not appear as just a reflection, to my untrained eye, anyway. Is it possible that the sun is shining brighter/hotter/different UV wavelengths, which is being reflected off the moon, which would account for the moon appearing much brighter than it did 10-20-30 years ago??

I was just outside (approx. 8:30 p.m.) and was startled by a light being cast on my neighbors roof. I thought, what the hell is that bright light being reflected off his roof? Is there a helicopter? But I don't hear one. It's as bright as the lights at the top of a pole surrounding a high school football field illuminated at night!
Sure enough, I walked around my house and saw the moon, casting way more light than I can ever remember in my life.
Now, I do know it is a very clear night here in southern New England, and yes it is a full moon. But, if the skies were so clear, then wouldn't more stars be visible as well?
The moon is giving off a bluish light, sterile light as if from a 6500k daylight bulb.
It appears way too bright. I can not ever remember seeing a moon so bright.
full disclosure: I am completely sober and drug-free. Yes I have seen the video of the pot-head who claims the moon is a projection.
I don't know why the moon appears so bright, but I always thought the Harvest Moon was supposed to be the brightest full moon of the year.
Please go outside and tell me what you think!
