A 'Super Moon' Commeth
This Saturday, not only do we have a full moon, but it will be the biggest full moon of 2011! Although it won't appear much bigger to the naked out, looking through your telescope, it will appear almost 7 times bigger than normal. This 'Super moon' may bring about unusually high tides. How can that be? Read the information below from www.space.com:
"Mar. 19, 1:10 p.m. CDT – Full Worm Moon: In this month, the ground softens and the earthworm casts reappear, inviting the return of the robins.
The more northern tribes knew this as the Full Crow Moon, when the cawing of crows signals the end of winter, or the Full Crust Moon because the snow cover becomes crusted from thawing by day and freezing at night. TheFull Sap Moon, marking the time of tapping maple trees, is another variation.
The moon will also arrive at perigee only 50 minutes later at 3:00 p.m. EDT at a distance of 221,565 miles (356,575 kilometers) from Earth. So this is the biggest full moon of 2011. Very high ocean tides can be expected during the next two or three days, thanks to the coincidence of perigee with full" moon.
