Massive Supermoon will Rise in the Sky this Sunday

Massive Supermoon will Rise in the Sky this Sunday
 
 

There are times when the moon is at its closest to the earth. This Sunday will be such a day. A massive supermoon will rise in the sky on the weekend. All sky gazers will have a field day.

This Sunday, astronomers and enthusiasts will get to see quite a lunar vision. A huge moon will be visible from earth on June 23, 2013. The phenomenon is called a super perigee moon when it will reach to its huge visibility point oat 7 a.m. EDT (1100 GMT) on Sunday. It is 30% shinier and 14% more massive than an ordinary moon. According to legends the nearness to the earth caused all sorts of disasters. Earthquakes and lunacy were just two of the hazards listed. However, NASA says that all this is just mythology and hence meaningless nonsense. The effect of the moon’s gravitational field on the earth’s tides is minimal. This is due to the fact that the earth has its own convection currents. The moon is as large as the African continent and is the closest heavenly body to planet earth. A supermoon may cause light pollution. But still it is a great opportunity for people to gaze at our planet’s satellite in wonderment.

This will be the closest the moon has gotten to the surface of the earth this year according to Sapce.com. At a distance of 221,824 miles from the third planet from the sun, the moon achieves a perigee each month. However, this Sunday not only will the moon come close but it will be a full moon. That is what makes it so remarkable an event. It will truly be a supermoon.

There will be a webcast for enthusiastic followers of the phenomenon. The timings of the supermoon last for a brief moment only. In fact, it is so small a window of opportunity that viewers have difficulty differentiating between the start and the finish. Slowly, bit by bit the shades start appearing and engulf the big fat orb in their miasma. It is indeed a gradual evolutionary process. As for the tides, they will undergo various highs and lows.

The time when the perigee moon is at the horizon is when it is at its most colossal. That is when it ought to be seen either with a naked eye or telescope. It has been termed the moon illusion. The moon was the first step in the journey into outer space by mankind. After the moon landing now humanity looks forward to a manned vehicular landing on Mars within the next few years time span.
