June 14 2013 Astronomy Newsletter


Hi everybody

Here's the latest article from the Astronomy site at BellaOnline.com.

What Is a Supermoon
Some times the media are full of stories about a supermoon. They may even include dire predictions of earthquakes, tsunamis and other disasters. What is a supermoon and should you be worried?

Here's a picture from the May 2012 “supermoon”: http://pinterest.com/pin/250090585530471854/ It's another example of how the Moon looks huge in photos taken at some distance from a foreground object.

Every lunar orbit of the Earth has an apogee (farthest point) and a perigee (nearest pont). And it's not uncommon to have this occur very close to the full or new Moon. The next time is the night of June 22. The following morning the Moon will be full and at its closest to the Earth for the entire year. However in both May and August there will be a full Moon near perigee.
