August 21, 2015 - Supermoon
If we like your full moons during their full mooniest, there’s no moonier time than a supermoon. And there only so occur to be 3 supermoons this fall. (Video via JoanneQEscober / CC BY 2.0)
The new trend of giving a closest full moons a special pretension any year doesn’t seem to be going away. And yes, we’ve all listened that the cinema going around showing an positively huge moon in a sky are fake. (Video via NASA)
And yes, we’ve listened astronomers protest about a term:
“If we have a 16-inch pizza, would we call that a super pizza compared with a 15-inch pizza?” Neil deGrasse Tyson asked.
And yeah, fine, it’s not even unequivocally a conspicuous difference. Despite all of that, a supermoon is a good sign only to go suffer looking during a full moon each once in a while. So there are really worse trends.
You know what else is cool? New moons — when a moon is hidden in shade — can technically be supermoons, too. Maybe that needs a special name. Sneaky moon? (Video via NASA)
