same ole' Moon

Time for some myth-busting. Manuel sent me a note.
A friend of mine just asked me a question about the moon brightness last week. Do you know why the moon was brighter last week?
I explained there was nothing special about the Moon. It had been in full phase on the 7th. It had been at perigee (or closest to the Earth) on the 11th. Not super.
