    Jackpot! The first of 3 SUPER moons. No need for a scope, just use a
    zero mag sight tube ;-) Bonus. September's super moon features an eclipse.
    
    As for timing, a man with more than one watch never knows what time it

    According to Sky and Telescope, full moon is 2:35 pm EDT on August 29.
