Here is a view of the May 2012 Super Moon phenomenon – the full moon happens to occur at the same time as it is at its closest approach to the earth, and with a meteor shower and on Cinco De Mayo.
You can see the date and time change at the bottom of the video.
This view is of the earth, top-down, looking onto the Arctic.

Astrologically, I think it will be a beautiful Moon, but due to its conjunction geocentrically with Saturn, it may not be a joy bringer.
Now, next month will bring us a solar eclipse and the full moon will be with Rahu, the head of the dragon. Both will be debilitated and rising in the US.
That, I am not looking forward to.
Sorry to be a downer. Go ahead and enjoy the Moon with its conjunction with Saturn this weekend. Contemplate the vastness of Shiva, the depth of ancient lessons, the truth of eternity.
