Next month’s full moon (September 8th) will be almost as close.

As Alice Enevoldsen writes in the newest edition of “Skies Over West Seattle,” it’s only one of this week’s attractions for skygazers.

How close *was* the moon, you ask? 221,765 miles. Or so. This calculator puts it a bit farther away.
