Thousands of people flocked to a Normandy island of Mont Saint-Michel in northern France on Saturday to declare a “tide of a century.”

The refuge is routinely related to a mainland, though a unusually high open tide, distended by a “super moon,” incited it into an island.
A super moon occurs when a moon comes closer to a earth than normal.
The supposed “tide of a century” happens each 18 years. Those who missed it will have to wait until Mar 2033 to see it again.
The National Aeronautics and Space Administration pronounced a solar obscure took place from 7:40 a.m. to 11:50 a.m. (GMT) on Saturday.
