Nodes of the Moon

Doug Hufnagel explains why the moon will hang so high in the sky tonight in his guest column at VillageSoup:
If you step outside late this evening and look straight up, you’ll see the December full moon almost directly overhead. The moon is so high in the sky that the shadow it casts will be the shortest since the mid-1980s.

There are a number simple natural factors in play that coincide at this moment in time to produce the unusual astronomical event. [Link]
Let's hope the clouds hold off long enough to allow us all a good view.
