Astronomer Richard Nolle dub the moon as a giant “Supermoon”. This moment occurs when the full moon in 90 percent condition.
The position of the moon when it’s closer to Earth. This event will occur Saturday, May 5th
Months will be within 356 955 km of our planet. Sky watchers will get a special treat moon bigger and brighter called supermoon.
This is not only a great month to coincide with the full moon, but is at the closest distance of this year. According to meteorological experts, Joe Rao, a distance of the moon varies about 3 percent, as quoted from page Space.com. This occurs because the moon’s orbit is not perfectly circular.
Full moon in this month’s 16 percent brighter than average. Instead, on 28 November, the full moon is the farthest location. That night the full moon looks very small and dim.
Despite months of this giant can surprise you, but scientists say there is no threat coming. Distance difference is not sufficient cause little earthquakes or extreme danger tidal effects.
Although not threatened, supermoon have an impact. Tides in the world will be very high and low. At the moment this nearby, strong tidal forces over 42 per cent over the farthest peak in two weeks.
To be able to watch this weekend supermoon, look after the new moon, or before it sank. When the moon near the horizon. To compare the size, you can see the moon behind buildings or trees. The position of these observations will produce an optical illusion that makes the moon appear larger than actual size.
Some of the speculation mentioned supermoon effect on the earth. Supermoon occurring on January 10, 2005 is thought to cause the earthquake led to the tsunami in Aceh on December 26, 2004. The quake occurred 14 days before the perigee of the earth and moon occur.
Supermoon also occurred when Japan experienced a 8.9 magnitude earthquake on March 19, 2011. Eight days earlier, the peak of the proximity of the earth to the moon (perigee) occurs. Will there be another earthquake coincided with the presence supermoon this time?
Astronomer and lecturer David Reneke said there was an increasing cause of human fears over the coming apocalypse.
“If you try, you can trace the chronological relationship of natural disasters anything about what happened in the night sky, comets, planets, the sun,” he said.
In the past, the composition of the planet is expected to attract the sun to split in two. In fact did not happen.
“My prediction of the supermoon effects just cause tidal waves,” says Reneke
