At perigee (closest point) it can be as close as 354,000 km (220,000 miles). At apogee, it can be as far as 410,000 km (254,000 miles). Since the Moon orbits the Earth every month or so, it goes between these two extremes every two weeks
Astrologers predicted that on March 19 - a week tomorrow - the so-called 'supermoon' will be closer to Earth than at any time since 1992, just 221,567 miles away, and that its gravitational pull will bring chaos to Earth. Others on the Internet have predicted it will cause further catastrophes such as volcanic eruptions and earthquakes. Read more: www.dailymail.co.uk...

Well, something weird is going on thats for sure. l noticed three days ago that the crescent moon was wrong. lnstead of the tips being top and bottom the points we up, a fraction more and both tips would have been pointing up like cow horns, been like it the last two nights too. l have been a sky watcher for over forty years and l never seen anything like it before. My neighbours came out to see it an could'nt believe it either. Peace starchild.
