Why does the moon look so big tonight?

The Moon doesn't orbit the Earth in a perfect circle. At times the Moon is further or closer to the Earth. Currently the Moon is at the closest point in its orbit, or perigee to give it the technical name. This makes the moon appear over 14% bigger than when it is furthest away.
