Wow! Check Out This Moon!
Remember in the movie, “Bruce Almighty” when Jim Carrey’s character pulled the moon up close for his girlfriend, played by Jennifer Aniston? It might not be THAT big, but it’ll be a sight to behold. The close proximity is called the lunar perigee and this month it stands out as it’ll be a full moon with the moon appearing seven percent larger than usual, reflecting more of the sun’s rays.
Astronomers believe that it occurs before extreme weather like cyclones. Experts say people should remain on alert for potential disasters with waves reaching maximum heights due to the lunar tidal effects. But if you get a chance check out this phenomenon Saturday night. If you don’t you’ll have to wait because it won’t come this close until November 14, 2016.
