Moon will be within the nearest to Earth on March 19, 2011, Satellite Earth it will appear larger. At night, something like this happened since 1993, 18 years ago. This phenomenon is called ‘lunar perigee’. Meanwhile, there are astrologers who called it ‘SuperMoon’.
The appearance of the moon on March 19, 2011 it will be very interesting see if there are no clouds blocking. Point your head to heaven, Saturday, March 19, 2011 later, then you will see the moon looks like usual.
The appearance of the Moon that night will be very interesting to be photographed. But, some astronomers predict, it was worrisome, because it will affect climate patterns on Earth. Some people link the lunar perigee or supermoon it with disasters, like earthquakes.
What scientists say about supermoon? “There will be no earthquake or volcano eruption,” said Pete Wheeler of the International Centre for Radio Astronomy, like loaded News.com.au, Friday, March 4, 2011. “If indeed that happens, it is predestined.”
Said he, at that time, the Earth does go through a higher tide, and a lower ebb than usual. “There’s nothing to worry about,” added Wheeler.
To note, a number of disasters on Earth occur when the phenomenon of the lunar perigee, or when the distance between Earth and the Moon nearby. For example, storms New England in 1938, or flooding in the Hunter Valley in 1955.
Although not occur within that period, the disaster of Cyclone Tracy in 1974 and Hurricane Katrina in 2005 was also associated SuperMoon.
Wheeler agrees opinion, an astronomer as well as a lecturer, David Reneke said, too far to link the phenomenon with natural disasters. “If you want you can just link the nearly all the natural disasters that occur with what has been seen in the night sky – a comet, planets, the sun,” said Reneke.
Meanwhile, scientists and Planet Earth from Adelaide University, Dr Victor Gostin said, weather prediction, earthquake, volcano eruption, and other natural disasters on the basis of planetary configurations, never succeed.
