Wolf Moon

Wolf moon is what it is called when the moon is unusually bigger and brighter, it is taken from how native American Indians call it. Tonight you'll see a wolf moon and the moon will appear about 14 percent bigger and 30 percent brighter than the usual full moon that you know. Why is it so? Here is the explanation from Spaceweather.com:

"The moon's orbit around the Earth is not a circle but an ellipse, with one side 50,000 km closer to Earth than the other. Astronomers call the point of closest approach 'perigree,' and that is where the moon will be Friday night through Saturday morning."
