PHOTO super moon info!!

 
this is so cool!  cooler now that they know the entire universe is made of the same stuff (so far) which means we are all connected to each other out there.
hot out.  ds is still slow.  catching up. 
 
went to jacuzzi and a movie and saw "the forgotten" (good but i didn't like the ending, it seemed more realistic when it seemed like it was government/political stealing people's children and doing crap to their brain.  the being from outspace thing is too weird).   also saw "hangover" which i loved.  its hilarious.  i'm surprised i haven't seen it before.
 
hot and sunny today.  hoping for a night swim later.

It\'s hard to see what it says, though. I heard about it this morning since people are talking about it. I don\'t know what that is, that must be cool

a full moon at perigee is up to 14% larger and 30% brighter than one at its farthest point, or apogee. The full Moon occurring less than one hour away from perigee is a near-perfect coincidence that happens only every 18 years or so.[7]

Terminology[edit]

The name SuperMoon was coined by astrologer Richard Nolle in 1979, arbitrarily defined as:


...a new or full moon which occurs with the Moon at or near (within 90% of) its closest approach to Earth in a given orbit (perigee). In short, Earth, Moon and Sun are all in a line, with Moon in its nearest approach to Earth.[8]

The term supermoon is not used within the astronomical community, which use the term perigee-syzygy or perigee moon.[9] Perigee is the point at which the Moon is closest in its orbit to the Earth, and syzygy is a full or new moon, when the Earth, the Moon and the Sun are aligned. Hence, a supermoon can be regarded as a combination of the two, although they do not perfectly coincide each time. On average, about once a year the moon becomes full within a few hours of perigee
