Supermoon

Post by Kitkat on 11th August 2014, 11:11

Stargazers have been taking images of the spectacular 'supermoon' overnight. The phenomenon means the moon - which is classified as a 'perigee moon' by astronomers - appears bigger and brighter than usual because of its proximity to the earth. Some were lucky enough to also see the Perseid meteor shower which is caused by the Swift-Tuttle comet shedding part of its celestial body and leaving behind a trail of dust.

Some fabulous pictures here:  http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/in-pictures-28735682


The next supermoon is due to appear on 9 September.

Wish I'd seen that.
Some of the moon pictures are wonderful. Thanks Kitkat.



Be grateful for even the smallest thing, blessings come in many disguises.
