It was past 6pm tonight and I went out to feed my dog when I suddenly stared at the sky and seen the moon – perfect round and looks a little weird because of its yellowish color with surrounding blast of shadow. I called my niece’s attention and she immediately learned that it’s the super moon of 2012 that will appear on May 5th at 11.34pm EST when moon reaches perigee.
What I did? I rushed to my room and took my camera, and then shoot it! It was an awesome scene even if it is not yet the peak of it which is expected to be 14% bigger and 30% brighter. Right now, the moon gets higher and becomes brighter. I may be up until closed midnight to see its fullest view.
While I was having a slight meditation after looking at the superb moon tonight, I also asked myself – does it have any effect on anything on earth tonight? I was a little startled when I turned to yahoo home page and read the headline, “Stop the Lunacy! 5 Mad Myths About the Moon”. Now it’s your turn to read it.
