In 1999, The first full moon occurred on the winter solstice (first day of winter in 133 years. Since a full moon on the winter solstice is occurring in conjunction with a lunar perigee (point in the moonʹs orbit that is closest to Earth), the moon will appear about 14% larger than it does at apogee (the point in itʹs elliptical orbit that is farthest from the Earth). This will make it appear brighter. The Earth is also several million miles closer to the sun, than in the summer. Thus the sunlight striking the moon is about 7% stronger, making it still brighter. Also, this will be the closest perigee of the Moon of the year. (The moonʹs orbit is constantly deforming due to variances in the Earthʹs gravitational field.) On December 21st, 1866, the Lakota Sioux took advantage of this combination of occurrences and staged a devastating retaliatory night ambush on soldiers in the Wyoming Territory. Itʹs a super bright full moon, much more than the usual AND it hasnʹt happened this way for 133 years!
