Super full moon to shine on Saturday

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- There's a full moon Saturday but it won't be just any old full moon. It'll be bigger and brighter.
   It will appear larger as it makes its closest approach to Earth in nearly 20 years.
   Scientists estimate the "supermoon" rising in the east at sunset will appear 14 percent bigger and 30 percent brighter at its peak.
   It will be more than 221,000 miles away -- the closest to Earth since March 1993.
