  1. According to the inter webs, the Super Moon will peak at 7:54am PST tomorrow morning (Tuesday the 19th). I am trying to figure out if the best time to view would be: 1. Tomorrow morning (Tuesday). Moonset is 6:46:am. I am told super moons look most effective when on the horizon. It will be setting over the pacific ocean at that time. Sunrise is at 6:33am. This is the best combo of when the moon is on the horizon and the super moon is peaking. There will be some daylight obviously at that time as the sun will be rising though. OR 2. Tomorrow evening (Tuesday) Moonrise is 6:02pm. Sunset is 5:40pm. So it will be a little darker at this time as opposed to option 1. Also why does the moon appear largest when it is on the horizon if it's the same distance as when directly above? Is there a difference between moonrise and moonset? Is there a difference between it rising over the city or setting over the ocean? Looking for advice on when the most epic time to view would be. Thank you! -Mike
