Forecast is mainly cloudy overnight tonight around here so if I were in any way interested in this (I am not) then I would use the webcast.

The August full moon, known as the Surgeon Moon

Sturgeon Moon, not Surgeon.  The Algonquins called it this because it was easier to hunt sturgeons (fish) with the moonlight.  It has nothing to do with surgeons.

Unless the fish are injured.

I'd need to remove the boards, aluminum foil and black paint, and then "they" will be able to watch me.

Having watched the 2017 solar eclipse in person, I can say there are some phenomenon that have to be seen directly for the maximum experience.  I don't think a supermoon falls into the category.  Plus, it's been blue skies all day and overcast all night the last couple weeks.

I'd imagine at some point historically the Algonquin equivalent of a surgeon fished for sturgeon under a full moon at least once

If you didn't have these articles telling you it's a 'supermoon' you would see that it looks the exact same as any other night.

In my experience it's usually, "Damn, bright moon, you can pretty much see outside fine." but that happens often enough that it's not notable beyond maybe a comment

I was gonna go with something about the fishermen and holding of beer, but I like yours a lot better.

It kind of depends on where you are.  Something like this happened last May or so when I was up in far northern WI where there is no light pollution or general pollution.  The moon appeared huge and red.  It was definitely out of the ordinary.  I never see stuff like that at this house because of the light and otherwise pollution.

Yep, atmospheric conditions are the biggest part of that.  Some full moons may as well be quarters due to pollution, clouds, whatev

Fortunately for me, Sado-Masochism is among my interests, and keelhauling is my particular fetish...

And yet when I let people see the moon online for free, I get banned from YouTube.

Like those TV stations that advertise "Weather - In Your Neighborhood!".  I guess that means I'd have to get out of the chair and look out the window, though.  The remote is closer.

Doctor, doctor, give me the news. I've got a bad case of loving moons.

Got my 8 inches pointing up. The telescope also.
Without a filter, full moon is WAY to bright to view through telescope.
