Well, some days ago I read in some digital news via my cell, that the earthquake n tsunami in Japan was caused by this SuperMoon fenomena. But then some expert disagree about this statement, they said there's no way a moon can caused earthquake n tsunami. *that's what I thought too, stupid media sensation*
Now, after I read this news...I'm curious about the SuperMoon. I read in other digital news it will happen at 02.10 am Indonesia time, 11.03.19. I plan to hover the sky and see the moon, but I got sleepy and forgot about my plan T____T. Just remember now when I saw wonderful pics of it on twitter.
FYI, A Supermoon is perigee-syzygy, a new or full moon (syzygy) which occurs when the Moon is at 90% or greater of its mean closest approach to earth (perigee), by Richard Nolle.
You can see his 'crazy' supermoon table : www.astropro.com/features/tables/cen21ce/suprmoon.html
He said yesterday, March 19, 2011 was the Extreme Supermoon
(Moon at 100% or greater mean perigee). No wonder if it look like this :
This SuperMoon was on @erwinparengkuan twitter pic, he took the pic last night (11.03.19) in Bali.
I'm not finished yet, this another one here :
This SuperMoon was taken at Natsepa beach, Ambon. I don't know where it originally from but I found it on @tiaraul twitpic.
EDIT : It is @tiaraul's pic btw :D.
If I didn't see those pics I wouldn't have know if the moon can actually be this BIG @___@. Now, I believe the Moon in Moon Child could be that big XD
Beautiful moon view ne~
I wish I can see such moon with my own bare eyes *____* feels so otherworldly..
I want to see it....in my dream X( *off to sleep now*
