That notion about people getting strange under a full moon is just folklore and it's a good thing too because tonight is the night of the super-moon.

The biggest and brightest full moon of the year will arrive as Earth's celestial neighbor passes closer to Earth than usual.

The moon will pass about 15,000 miles closer to Earth than average. That will make it appear bigger than usual, although it will be hard to see the difference. Like any full moon, it will look bigger when it's hanging close to the horizon, which happens around sunset.
