The Super Moon really was a sight to see. Although only 14% bigger, which is not all that huge to the naked eye, it was certainly much brighter than normal. Felt like I need my super moon sun glasses. Check out the Canon LEGRIA FS20 - 2000x Digital Zoom HD video I made here:
Super Moon Orb UFO Notice the pulsing or irregularly flashing orb near the end? Then it just, phew, vanished from the super moon lit, star shining skies! In any event, one lovely Super moon... Saw also something similar a few weeks with the crescent moon video and the UFO in that clip as well! Anywho; I wonder if the Mayan's had a term for the Super Moon?
NASA says this on the Super Moon:
"The full Moon of March 19th occurs less than one hour away from perigee--a near-perfect coincidence1 that happens only 18 years or so," adds Chester. A perigee full Moon brings with it extra-high "perigean tides," but this is nothing to worry about, according to NOAA. In most places, lunar gravity at perigee pulls tide waters only a few centimeters (an inch or so) higher than usual. Local geography can amplify the effect to about 15 centimeters (six inches)--not exactly a great flood.
The Moon looks extra-big when it is beaming through foreground objects--a.k.a. "the Moon illusion." Indeed, contrary to some reports circulating the Internet, perigee Moons do not trigger natural disasters." SOURCE (and full article): Super Full Moon
