March 19th "Super Moon" ~ A cosmic event of beauty or disaster?

On Saturday, March 19, the moon will come closer to the Earth than it has in the last 18 years and it will be a full moon. It will light up the night sky from just 221,567 miles or 356,577 kilometers away. It is being referred to as a " Super Moon" or "Lunar perigee". Some are suggesting that it could cause massive damage to our planet.

In particular, Richard Nolle, a noted astrologer, who runs the website, has famously called the upcoming full moon an "extreme supermoon." (Note: astrology is not a real science but rather makes connections between astronomical and mystical events.) He suggests that this moon will cause huge storms, earthquakes, volcanoes and other natural disasters. Nolle also lists a number of dates going back almost 60 years, which coincide with floods in 1955, 1974, 1992 and 2011 – each 18-19 years apart. He suggests that on March 19, the Super moon cycle for this year will be at its closest, warning that further flooding is on the way.

Scientists have agreed that this idea is not as crazy as it might sound. The moon does cause the ebb and flow of the ocean tides and it's gravity can also cause small ebbs and flows in the continents, called "land tides" which are greatest during full and new moon. So the moon does stress the earth a bit however there has been no observation of a correlation between earthquakes, flooding and other natural disasters and that of full moons. Scientists also say that the gravitational pull of a Super Moon is not different enough from it's pull at other times to significantly cause the likelihood of natural disasters. Most natural disasters have nothing to do with the moon at all. The Earth has a lot of pent up energy, and most natural disasters are usually caused by releases of it anytime the buildup gets too great.

However with the recent earthquake and tsumani disaster in Japan, many are left wondering what really will happen on the 19th with the Super Moon. One thing is for sure, this will be an exciting time to to make the "Super Moon" observation a must to do that night to witness the celestrial beauty of the moon as it orbits the closest ever to our earthly home.
