Look Up in the Sky…it’s Supermoon!
If the moon looks bigger than usual Saturday night/Sunday morning, it is not your eyes playing tricks on you.
Saturday’s full moon is what is known as an extreme supermoon.
The full moon will occur while the moon is at its closest point, 212,000 miles, to Earth in almost 20 years. NASA says the moon will appear to be much larger than usual and will bring with it larger than normal tides.
Some people say the supermoon is a sign that global chaos, such as earthquakes, storms or unusual climate patterns are coming. In the recent past, we have seen super moons in 1955, 1974, 1992 and 2005. In all of those years there are examples of extreme events; however, most scientists debunk the theory.
