Hey, fellow ATSers. The forecast for my area (San Francisco) is rain, rain, rain, cats, dogs, and more rain. Thus, I won't be able to witness Saturday's beautiful, full "super moon." Would you please post a picture of it from where you are?

Also, for fun, I would love to hear any tales of people acting strangely or other things that might be attributed to the "super moon" (besides earthquakes, please -- that's well covered in other threads and getting my mind off of it is part of the reason I started this thread).

Thanks!

You know, this Super Moon may get so close as to get people to actually believe that chemtrails are not real...This may be the real reason for the super moon...to make people believe lies are the truth !!!

Never seen a super moon before so I am hoping for a clear sky like tonight.

I have a tale that just may be related to a previous Super Moon. One of the threads on here had a post saying the last one was about 20 years ago. Right after I saw The Seventh Sign when it first came out on DVD--that night or the next--I'm pretty sure what I saw was a super moon.

I happened to be out one night after seeing that movie, walking around outside my house. And after just having seen that apocolyptic film (e.g., the moon turning red as blood), that moon freaked me out! It was HUGE, and closer than I'd ever seen the moon to be. It also looked really red. Not orange like a harvest moon, a brilliant, glowing red like the setting sun. But I knew it had to be the moon because as glowing brightly red as it was, it was in the east, at nightime.

Odd, though. Last night, I noticed the moon didn't seem to be any larger or closer than usual, yet we're now due for the super moon tomorrow.

I am really lucky today, I have a clear sky through tonight so I will get to see the moon really well. I realize tonight is not the perigee but the weather has been so terrible (constant clouds, precipitation) over the last week that I cannot hold my breath. I am located in Alberta, and I can hopefully get some shots to post... for sure tonight, and *crosses fingers* tomorrow.

Yeah, good idea!
Will do as the sky in my area will be clear; the moon will be 30% brighter and 14% apparently bigger than usual.

Clear skies in the North of Scotland for a change


I was planning on getting some pictures taken tonight or tomorrow, any ideas as to what would make a good point of reference to show the size of the moon?

It looks absolutely huge here at the minute!

Unfortunately a super full moon can really only mean one thing...Super Werewolves!

well i can certainly help you out on the tale side of it. i have nightshift tonight in the emergency department of a main hospital. to say that im not looking forward to it is a huge understatement.

You guys are all great, and to all the future posters, too -- thanks! Officially, the moon is full tomorrow, but it's showing as 99% full now on my moon phases counter (self-confessed geek, what can I say?) So, snap away!

Highlandlad, the expert photographers say that it's helpful to get anything at all in the frame when you take pics -- buildings, people, werewolves....for a size reference. Of course, that assumes that you can snap the pic while it's at or near the horizon. If it's farther up in the sky, a UFO would do nicely.


Punterdeb, I have always heard that the emergency room is a wild place to be during a full moon. 'Hope it goes well, and interested to hear a firsthand account.

By the way, does anyone out there have a dog that howls at the moon? I've always heard about that, but wondered if it was really true. (Mine used to howl at the mailbox.)

Peace

Working in pharmacy, we always laugh at the full moon customers we get in on that particular day. I just take it as an "in shop" old wives tale but are you telling me the same goes for the emergency department in hospitals? If so that is interesting and we underestimate our beautiful mystical moon. Lucky I'm not rostered on tonight

Me and my neighbor want to run a little experiment to see if gravity on the planet is lessened during the perigee. We were just gonna see how high we could jump, but too many variables come into play. Any ideas on how to potentially measure this?

I am at the moment in central England and although the moon looks to be its usual size it is considerably brighter than I have ever seen. It is 2am here and lighting up the sky so much that I can CLEARLY see all my garden through the _ This is with an internal light on when normally I see nothing but darkness due to the lights on inside. Very bright, very pretty can't wait until tonight as we are lucky to have clear blue sky forecast for tomorrow. Hope to get great pictures and put them on here

I am so ready for this full moon.

The moon has always had a drawing power over me and I could look at it for hours.

Just looked at it in southeast Georgia and it is already beautiful.

I remember seeing that exact same moon. I was a kid at the time and was certain the moon was going to fall into the earth, and the red color freaked me out. When I first heard of tomorrows supermoon, my husband suggested perhaps that is what I saw way back when.

Tonight I was looking at the moon with one of the kiddies and made the same comment, it didn't seem to be any larger than normal. Wouldn't it be a gradual thing, meaning it should be bigger tonight if it's going to be super tomorrow?

edit: Wait is it tonight? If that's the case, it is not what I saw previously, it doesn't look different than normal.
