    Arrow Super Moon "Supermoon" - Viewing, "Earthquake Potential" and More March 19 2011



    Super Moon "Supermoon" - Viewing, Earthquake Potential and More March 19 2011

    March 19th Earth’s only satellite will be at its closest point to our planet in 18 years -- only 356,577 kilometers away. The event -- also called a lunar perigee -- was dubbed a "supermoon" by astrologer Richard Nolle back in the 1970s. The term is used to describe a new or full moon at 90% or more of its closest orbit to Earth. Next week, it will be at 100%.

    Came across this earlier, thought I'd post it up.

    Perigee Full Moons during 21st century
    Closest and farthest perigee Full Moons are listed below.

    Closest Perigee Full Moon: 2052-Dec-06 07:19 TT = 356,426 km
    Farthest Perigee Full Moon: 2084-Jun-18 10:03 TT = 357,596 km

    Below are listed perigee Full Moons for years 2001 to 2100. All times in Terrestrial Time. If there is an eclipse at any specific Full Moon, eclipse type is given: T - total; P - partial; N - Penumbral.

    Looks like it is the closest it will be for a while, I guess I am going to mark the occassion and get some wide-field shots of the moon, and why not try some ccd imaging of the craters maybe some closeness will help?

    I think it is partly coincidence that the earthquakes are happening now, but I also think it plays some role in plate tectonics as it does with water in the ocean (tides).

    It will be very bland in detail ( for CCD ) with it being Full . Best stick to the WF with something in the forground to show some sort of scale.

    With gravity being ( relitively ) a weak force , I think it will just make the tides a bit highter ( inches rather than feet/metres ). Doubt it can affect Tectonic Plates , if you think about it , Moon orbiting , getting closer then farther away , you would ''expect'' to see more evidence of Tect' movement somewhere every month , with the Moon being a common denominater ?

    True Pete, I was discussing this with my wife and I said would be great to have a graph with peak distances/closest and earthquakes w magnitude around those days (+/- 10-14 days?) to get an idea of the effect.

    I think its small but who knows until someone gets the data (I will look if I have more time).

    Thanks for the advice!, will do wide-field no CCD.

    Scientists are saying that the increase in earth activity will be nothing to so small that it may as well be nothing. These recent natural disasters are just a coincidence.
    This occasion has been a great opportunity for this astrologer to get some recognition. There isn't any good science being discussed in these articles, unfortunately.
