What is a Super Moon?

Posted June 12, 2013 1:23 PM

From Universe Today:

The closest full Moon of 2013 occurs on June 23, when it will be 356,991 kilometres from Earth, within 600 kilometres of its closest possible approach. When the Moon is closest to Earth in its orbit, it also appears just a bit larger in the sky. But that's if you're really paying attention, however!

I take it you do not people watch while at Walmart? If so you would know full well those two back ends wouldn't even garner a second look!

If an average sized child can't use it as an observation balcony its not big enough.

BTW I have personally seen far bigger. (I wish I could unsee them but thats currently not possible.)

Condoleezza Rice bragged at a party once, that her butt could hold a quarter and it wouldn't slide off.

Apparently it did.
