Look up in the sky, it’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s Super Moon!

That’s the comical look at the recent spate of quakes and disasters summed up by the Washington Post writer Alexandria Petri. Some may take it too seriously as a mild yet growing concern over the upcoming real phenomenon called a Super Moon that will occur on March 19 of this year.

For those unfamiliar, a Super Moon is a rare occasion that occurs when the Moon is closest to earth in about 18-19 years called “perigee”.

When a planet or other spatial body comes closest to another it is referred to as “perigee”. In this case not only will the Moon be in perigee, it will be a full moon thus calling it a Super Moon.

Some experts and average folks suspect that the proximity of the Moon may cause unusual weather and tectonic events such as the quakes of recent. This Washington Post story takes a playful look at the phenom but it’s not something to be taken too lightly.

There may well be some evidence that such a close encounter with our Moon does indeed have an affect on some things on Earth. We’ll have to wait and see what actually transpires.
