No "Super Moon" for Me
Thick, orgulous cloud has cloaked the heavens, knocking out the Moon and Venus and Mercury close together.
A few hopeful gaps in the cloud allowed us to go to the beach, where we stood in howling wind and drizzle crashing kites into the ground at high speed. sadly, these gaps in the cloud have not translated into anything useful astronomically.
At least I get to stay inside near the heater.
Where does the sun rise in your neck of the woods these days?
Google - "Huge Media Blackout Regarding Earth and Moon Orbital Changes"
It's still bright outside tonight and the moon is a day past perigree.
I couldn't visually see it being any bigger then any other time the moon illusion makes the moon look huge.
There is no record of timing and latitude/ longitudes for these observations, just vague statements that the sun and moon look different. Where's the 50 year logbook of sunrise and sunset sightings ?
Oh we'll ... Someone will always be wrong on the Internet.
