This Saturday we will have one of the largest full moons in well, many moons... a couple of decades. I don't know about you, but I'm hoping for clear skies to catch a glimpse of that big beauty.
I've been around for more than a couple of decades, and I don't remember there being any big incidents thought to be related to large moon phenomena personally. However I also know that our occurrences of quakes and other events some speculate may be influenced by the pull of the moon are on the increase, and times not being what they were, perhaps the closer proximity of the moon may be just that extra stress to trigger an event.
What are your thoughts on the mega-moon?
Moonageddon: on March 19, our nearest neighbour will be at its closest since 1993
IT'S not a bad moon rising, but it is a big one.
The question of whether trouble's on the way, however, is entirely up to what or who you believe.
In a fortnight Earth will experience the biggest moon it has seen in nearly two decades.
As well as providing some unique photo opportunities, some astronomers - well, one - are already predicting it may bring more worrying disruptions to the Earth’s climate patterns.
Earthquakes are not out of the question. More about that later.
For now, all you need to know is that on March 19th the moon will be at its closest point to Earth in 18 years, an event that is known as a “lunar perigee”.
Or the much more exciting “SuperMoon”, as one astrologer called it.
On March 19, the moon will be just 356,577km away from Earth, an event that has internet theorists a-quiver with the possibility of extreme weather, earthquakes and volcanoes.
