At precisely 1:08 this afternoon, the moon will make its annual closest approach to the Earth. And when it becomes full at 10:35 p.m., it will be knighted a “supermoon” — or “Paschal Moon” or “Pink Moon,” depending on the source.

But for a variety of reasons, Wednesday is looking like the night for moon watching, and if you can’t go outside, a window should do — and there’s always YouTube.

An overcast sky likely will obscure the moon Tuesday night for parts of the U.S., but it still will be almost full come Wednesday night, when the forecast calls for partly cloudy skies.
