Waiting for the Supermoon

After sunset

As the golden rays leave earth

Darkness creeps in

I am not afraid

Soon the Supermoon will rise

Bright and shining on earth

In the month of June twenty thirteen

We are waiting for you

Give us light and happiness

Give us Peace on earth

Wipe the trouble from this world

Let humanity see your beauty

I wish the Supermoon had the power

To bring us Peace on earth now!

“Fly me to the moon, and let me play among the stars. Let me see what spring is like, on Jupiter and mars. In other words, hold my hand, ———–”  While I was editing my pictures for the Supermoon video Nat King Cole’s recording of, Fly me to the moon was echoing in my ears.  I love his voice and music.  It is my honor to combine my video with his song. 

I was lucky taking the picture of the Supermoon on Sunday, June 22, 2013.  I tried to take pictures of Supermoon again on Monday, June 23 which was supposed to be the best day of the full moon but the sky was so cloudy because of so much moisture in the air.  I saw no moon.  I tried again until June 26 there was no moon appearing in the sky only dark blankets of clouds.

A supermoon is the coincidence of a full moon or a new moon with the closest approach the Moon makes to the Earth on its elliptical orbit, resulting in the largest apparent size of the lunar disk as seen from Earth. The technical name is the perigee-syzygy of the Earth-Moon-Sun system. The term “supermoon” is not astronomical, but originated in modern astrology.[1] The association of the Moon with both oceanic and crustal tides has led to claims that the supermoon phenomenon may be associated with increased risk of events such as earthquakes and volcanic eruptions, but the evidence of such a link is widely held to be unconvincing. [2]

The most recent occurrence was on June 23, 2013, as the closest and largest full moon of the year and the Moon’s closest encounter with Earth for all of 2013. It will not be so close again until August 10, 2014.[3]

Supermoons occur about once every 14 full moons in a full moon cycle
