The Supermoon

Posted: August 2, 2013 in Misc. Stuff

Ok…so I am a little late in getting my pictures of the Supermoon posted.

However…I figured that mine are not NEARLY as good as so many others…that if I waited long enough…people might Oh and Awww over mine now!  LOL

For those that don’t know what the Supermoon is…here is Wikipedia’s answer:

A supermoon is the coincidence of a full moon or a new moon with the closest approach the Moon makes to the Earth on its elliptical orbit, resulting in the largest apparent size of the lunar disk as seen from Earth. The technical name is theperigee-syzygy of the Earth-Moon-Sun system. The association of the Moon with both oceanic and crustal tides has led to claims that the supermoon phenomenon may be associated with increased risk of events such as earthquakes and volcanic eruptions, but the evidence of such a link is widely held to be unconvincing.  The most recent occurrence was on June 23, 2013, as the closest and largest full moon of the year and the Moon’s closest encounter with Earth for all of 2013. It will not be so close again until August 10, 2014.  Supermoons occur about once every 14 full moons in a full moon cycle.

I hope you enjoy!!!
