Today and tomorrow the full moon is at one of the closest it is to the earth and also full, unlikely to see it tomorrow with rain forecast...

Really doesn't matter if the moon is 5% closer. A

5% increase in lens FL will have the same effect. 

Close in or farther off, there's still the exact same  

atmosphere between lens and subject. So .... a 

rather more important concern is to minimize the

amount of atmosphere in your way, by shooting 

at or near midnight and when the moon's orbit is

higher above the horizon. 

  

OTOH ! ! ! Credit where it's due: Wolf, horse, or 

squirrel moon regardless, nice job of USING the 

atmosphere instead of regretting that it's "just in 

the way". Astronomy is one thing but aesthetics 

is a whole nuther thing. Actual astronomy these

days is quite divorced from that which our own  

eyes can see, even with greatest magnification.

So, aesthetically, "The eyes [still] have it" :-)

I thought they are all in full color .... 

  

The moon is, after all, a big ball covered with

rather colorless dust, and is lit directly lit by

harsh sunlight [about 6,000K in the vacuum].
