Are you Ready for the Super Moon on March 19, 2011

When and Where to Watch the Super Moon March 19, 2011

Potential Events of a Super Moon, This was recorded before the Japanese Earthquake and Tsunami!

The earthquake and the Tsunami  in Japan are certainly horrific events which saddens all of us. I have a particular stake in Japan because I have lived there for many years and still have many friends that are there. We now know that there has been some damage to Hawaii and the mianland of the United States. We should all be paying close attention.  

I have been following with some interest the expected Super Moon on March 19, 2011.
Many people have been asking the question is the upcoming Super Moon really a lot of Super Hype. Regardless of how you feel about it, we should watch out for disasters that are enhanced by this moon phase.

The astrological prediction of an upcoming “Extreme SuperMoon” spell impending disaster for earth seems more real now then ever. The scientist claim this is just a natural occurring phenomena and we should take it in stride. Well there are a few things that we know for sure, it is a scientific fact when the Moon is at perigee there is more gravitational pull, creating higher tides or significant variations in high and low tides. In addition, the tidal effect of the Sun’s gravitational field increases the Moon’s orbital eccentricity when the orbit’s major axis is aligned with the Sun-Earth vector. What exactly does this mean, well it depends on who you ask. 

Here is what the astrologers will tell you!
 “SuperMoons are noteworthy for their close association with extreme tidal forces working in what astrologers of old used to call the sublunary world: the atmosphere, crust and oceans of our home planet – including ourselves, of course. From extreme coastal tides to severe storms to powerful earthquakes and volcanic eruptions, the entire natural world surges and spasms under the sway of the Super Moon alignment – These events can occur either just before or just after the actual Super Moon.

I leave you with a recent news story from ABC, you will find the source link at the bottom.
To see it on the Internet, the so-called supermoon could cause a climatological reign of terror on the entire planet. Although it's more than a week away, some people say the devastating 8.9-magnitude earthquake that hit Japan today could be the latest natural disaster caused by it.

The 2005 Indonesian tsunami hit two weeks before the supermoon and for the 2011 supermoon, which is suppose to occur March 19, the moon won't just be at its closest approach to Earth in its elliptical orbit, enthusiasts say, it will be closer to Earth than it has been in 18 years.
Paul Walker, senior meteorologist for AccuWeather Inc., said it's unlikely the supermoon played a role in today's earthquake.
"I don't think you can attribute it to being a full moon, which is still eight days away," Walker said. "These moon events can cause the tides to run higher than normal, but I've not heard of any correlation between them and extreme weather events."

Next weekend's full moon won't just be a supermoon but an extreme supermoon, he said, because the moon will be almost precisely at its closest distance to Earth.
According to "new age" forecasts, he said, the supermoon brings strong earthquakes, storms or unusual climate patterns.

"There were supermoons in 1955, 1974, 1992 and 2005," he wrote. "These years had their share of extreme weather and other natural events. Is the Super Moon and these natural occurrences a coincidence?
"Some would say yes; some would say no. I'm not here to pick sides and say I'm a believer or non-believer in subjects like this, but as a scientist I know enough to ask questions and try to find answers."
