In awe of God’s creation – This weekend’s SuperMoon – SuperLuna din acest weekend – Coplesit de creatia lui Dumnezeu

ROMANIAN – SuperLuna, fenomen astronomic care are loc la fiecare 14 luni, în timpul căruia satelitul natural al planetei noastre se află în faza de Lună plină şi va apărea mai mare şi mai strălucitor decât în oricare altă noapte din 2013, va avea loc în acest weekend, pe 23 iunie. Pe 23 iunie, Luna va apărea mai mare şi mai strălucitoare ca de obicei şi se va afla la cea mai mică distanţă faţă de Terra din întregul an – 356.991 de kilometri.

În timpul fenomenului de SuperLună, Pământul, Soarele şi Luna sunt aliniate – Terra aflându-se între Lună şi Soare. Forţele gravitaţionale exercitate pe Terra de Lună şi Soare determină creşterea şi scăderea mareelor, fapt care i-a determinat pe „alarmişti” să creadă că există o legătură între SuperLună şi calamităţile naturale. Potrivit NASA, mareele din timpul fenomenului de SuperLună sunt doar cu câţiva centimetri mai înalte decât cele produse în nopţile obişnuite. În 2013 au mai fost deja câteva SuperLuni, însă niciuna dintre ele nu s-a produs în timpul fazei de Lună plină.

Skies over the Desert Southwest and the lower Ohio Valley into the mid-Atlantic and southern New England will offer the clearest views of the supermoon. Moon rise Sunday June 23 7:33 am full strawberry moon.

It’s also the moon’s closest encounter with Earth in all of 2013. So it’s not just a supermoon — it’s the closest supermoon of the half-dozen or so that will occur this year, EarthSky reports.

The word supermoon was coined in 1979 by astrologer Richard Nolle, says AccuWeather’s Mark Paquette. Nolle used the term to describe a new or full moon that occurs when the moon is at or near its closest approach to Earth. The moon will pass within about 221,000 miles from the Earth on Saturday night, compared with its „typical” distance of about 238,000 miles. Garvin says the moon may seem bigger, although the difference in its distance from Earth is only a few percent. For instance, the moon on Saturday night will appear 12% to 14% larger than it will next month.

The moon’s effect on ocean tides is higher during a supermoon than any other time, so expect higher and lower tides than usual, reports Sean Breslin of the Weather Channel. (The high tide this weekend is also known as a „king” tide.) There is no connection between the supermoon and earthquakes, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

„If you’re looking for a more thrilling lunar event, a larger supermoon is expected on Sept. 28, 2015, and the largest supermoon until 2034 will occur on Nov. 14, 2016,” Breslin says. The Desert Southwest and the lower Ohio Valley into the mid-Atlantic and southern New England will have the clearest skies for viewing the supermoon, according to a forecast from AccuWeather.

The Upper Midwest will have the poorest conditions, since rain and thunderstorms are forecast across that region overnight, AccuWeather reports. Showers will also affect part of the Northwest and pockets of the Plains and Deep South, but will die out as the night goes on. The rest of the USA will have times of clear skies with patchy clouds obstructing views at times. SOURCE – USA Today

A SuperMoon is set to occur in the weekend of June 23rd, 2013. The video below explains that when the Full Moon coincides with its closest approach to Earth, we get a „Supermoon’ also known as the Perigee Full Moon. The full Moon appeared about 14% larger and 30% brighter than others on May 5, 2012. VIDEO by VideoFromSpace
