|Perigee Full Moon|
Before I downloaded it, I had to play with it and I zoomed one of the photos even closer. It got a little more blurry but it is pretty amazing how much detail you can see. Then the clouds came and I lost my view.
|Perigee Full Moon (zoomed 4 times from original)|
It is the Perigee Full Moon. In lay-mans terms it is the day of the year when the moon is at its closest to earth. What many are referring to as "Super" moon.
Did you know that scientifically, it is a fact that on the night of the full moon that the moon creates tidal effects on the oceans. Since the human body is over 80% water, it is possible that the Full Moons (in fact all the moon cycles) also have a physical and mental effect on us? After all the word lunatic was derived from the fact that people with certain mental illnesses are worse during the full moon phase. Ironically, geriatric dementia is worse during the new moon phase.
Weather providing, you may have one more day to take advantage of this beautiful view. Enjoy!
