Supermoon

In case anyone is interested, there's going to be a supermoon tonight!

See...


Also..

Space expert Heather Couper said "supermoons" were the result of coincidence. "The Moon goes round in an oval orbit so it can come very close to us, and if that coincides with a full moon, then it can look absolutely enormous," she told BBC Radio 4's Today programme.
She explained that when the Moon was high in the sky, it looked normal.

But as it got closer to the horizon, a "kind of optical illusion" occurred where it looked bigger when compared with trees or houses, she said.


Quote:
She suggested it might be possible to dispel the illusion by turning away from the Moon, bending over and looking at the sky from between your legs.
Can't see many people doing that!

Re: Supermoon

Good heads up but I thought it was tomorrow as well so have checked my star walk app on the ipad and it gives the moon still in its waxing gibbous phase at 91% full with full moon tomorrow night.

Well I will be spending the best part of tomorrow night in Dublin airport, so I am sure I will get to see it, as I pop out for a ciggie.
