SuperMoon Night….


Theres always a full moon night, but tonights moon will be a bit different than the others.. Its a Supermoon Night..!!

Usually a Supermoon appears once in 18yrs and also sometimes 4-6 times annually. Huge in size and brighter in color. This is the time when the Moon is the nearest to the earth in a given orbit- A mere 3,56,000kms out in orbit.

A lot of myths were born regarding the SuperMoon, but all have been slashed out by the astronomers. The only thing it will affect is the tides. Might just get a bit higher than usual.. I think thats the reason tides are formed otherwise too.. It has been argued that the Indian Ocean tsunami and earthquake on December 26, 2004, was influenced by a supermoon which occurred 2 weeks later on January 10, 2005. However two weeks before a supermoon the Moon is at the opposite point in its orbit: its apogee (greatest distance). Thus a supermoon effect is just impossible….

Most of the astrologers also argued that the recent Earthquake and Tsunami in Japan was due to the Supermoon, but how could the moon come out later than any big incident that has had happen days ago?? All myths!! There might just be some coastal floods which otherwise might happen with high tides too.. Not much Danger!

But anyways, we can still enjoy the view of the Super duper good looking Moon tonight…
