the moon’s distance from the earth is varying due to its elliptical orbit. the “super moon” is observed when a full moon occurs at its closest approach to the earth. every year there are 4-5 super moons, and quite a few of them have been associated with natural disasters, catastrophes, social uprisings, birth of quintuples
the full moon on may 6, 2012 was the most powerful in years, and it occurred exactly 100 years after the wreck of the titanic. next day record in memphis:
- in the audobon park where our secretary was jogging her car window was broken and several items like her cell phone and gps was stolen from the car;
- the old chairman of the department fall on the doorway and broke his nose;
- a colleague of mine was preparing to drive his family to the airport when a huge tree in front of their house fell down and hit their car...
quite enough to support the theory of non-accidental coincidences...
- coincidentally dedicated to a dancing dolphin and a storming fish :/)
we watched the super moon rise here in Los Angeles. my 3 year old daughter was definitely a little (extra) kookoo that day. we play close attention to the moons cycle in our household and try to be outdoors during full moons as much as possible. the pull and power is very real for me.
the music here is so melancholy and ambient. fitting.
your photograph feels alien and the super moon looks otherworldly when composed with the signs and that starburst of a light.
ROFL!! awww, waij geschrieen - the world will break down in 2012 anyway, according to the wretched majan calendar which ends in december, and now this super moon horror has befallen upon us! and you dedicate this to ME and poor jacki... i'm not flattered, my man, i'm NOT flattered at all! ;-)
btw, the difference between apogee and perigee is around 50'000 km. the moon still is over 350'000 km away from earth at minimum. it won't fall from the sky, it doesn't drag super waves out of the ocean, it doesn't make babies plop out of their mothers wombs and it definitely doesn't make the dolphins jump higher or the fish being stormier.
