Mart Laar's beard shaver: I'm always looking at the Moon, since the days of Apollo. I walked with my wife a couple days ago, saw the Moon low on the horizon, and remarked to her several times - "damn, the Moon look HUMONGOUS". I was convinced that it looked bigger, So I Googled why and found all the stories.I really don't care that much about the physics of it. But Tyson FAILS the first-person test.
StopLurkListen: Cerberus: I would think a Supermoon should not happen yearly. It's some astrologer's arbitrary definition of a full or new moon within 90% of perigee distance. Why not make it 99%? or 20%? How about we suggest people take a look at the moon while not near full phase with binoculars, and see the moon awesomeness at the terminator line? Or have that trippy little 5 minute astronomy show where the guy walks down the star path and tells us what is cool in the sky at the moment (was/is on PBS) on the Weather Channel instead?http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jack_HorkheimerHorkheimer had been close to death on several occasions because of his health issues. As a result, he had prepared a grave site next to his parents. He also had a tombstone prepared and wrote his own epitaph, which reads;"Keep Looking Up" was my life's admonition;I can do little else in my present position. [img.fark.net image 850x588]I miss that guy and his infectious enthusiasm.
H0W13: I don't know what he's talking about. The moon is ALWAYS super.[img.fark.net image 475x320]
