The perigee full moon, which happens once every 14 months, is happening next weekend and will likely bring with it tales of impending calamity and natural disaster.
Supermoon / full moon / new moon = closest Moon makes to the Earth on its elliptical orbit, resulting in the largest apparent size of the moon which can be seen from Earth.
Technical name of supermoon is is the perigee-syzygy of the Earth-Moon-Sun system.
And, this year’s supermoon is quickly upon us. It will be shinning its light next weekend on June 23. On that day, the moon will appear bigger and brighter, and be closer to Earth than it’s been all year — a total of 221,824 miles away, which is roughly 30,000 miles closer than when it’s at its farthest.
During a supermoon, the sun, Earth, and moon are aligned — with the Earth in between. Gravitational forces exerted on the Earth by the moon and sun are what cause our planet’s ocean tides to rise and fall, which is most likely why alarmists believe there’s a connection between supermoons and calamity.
So all my friends, grab this opportunity to enjoy the moon light/view, else you have to wait until August 2014 which according to science news site – EarthSky.
