See The Last Full Moon of 2012 Early Friday

Skies will be mainly clear in Dana Point and Laguna Niguel to witness the memorable site at 2:21 a.m. if you are up.

The days are winding down until the end of 2012, but you can make the year more memorable by witnessing the last full moon.

At around 2:21 a.m. Friday, look up at the skies over Dana Point and Laguna Niguel to see the moon in all its glory. AccuWeather says it will be mainly clear and chilly.

Should you also see a bright object in the moon’s vicinity it’s Jupiter.

According to NASA: "The full Moon has a reputation for trouble. It raises high tides, it makes dogs howl, and sometimes it wakes you up in the middle of the night with beams of moonlight stealing through drapes. The scientific term for the phenomenon is "perigee moon." Full Moons vary in size because of the oval shape of the Moon's orbit. The Moon follows an elliptical path around Earth with one side ("perigee") about 50,000 km closer than the other ("apogee"). Full Moons that occur on the perigee side of the Moon's orbit seem extra big and bright."
