The biggest and brightest full moon of 2012 is being spotted over most of the San Francisco Bay Area Saturday night, as it passes 15,300 miles closer to Earth than average.

For earthlings, the sight of the “supermoon” will be 14 percent larger and 30 percent brighter than typical full moons, astronomers estimate.

Protesters who have taken over Frank Ogawa Plaza in front of Oakland City Hall are continuing a week-long occupation, settled into their tent city for a ninth day on Wednesday with no sign that they plan to end the demonstration against government, big banks and corporate America.

Three meals a day are served at a makeshift cafeteria, first aid is provided at a medical booth, and a “media center” has sprung up — providing access to the web for protesters.
