The full moon Friday night will be the biggest one of the year as Earth's natural satellite reaches its closest point to our planet.
The moon's average distance from us is about 238,855 miles. Friday night it will be just 221,560 miles away. It will be 14 percent bigger in our sky and 30 percent brighter than some other full moons during the year, according to NASA.
