Big, bright, and gorgeous Full Moon–see National Geographic link for pics and more. The Moon will reach Full only 2 minutes after it passes perigee (it’s closest point to Earth). This is the closest that perigee will occur to a Full Moon for this century. The second runner up for this honor occurs Jan 21, 2023.
NASA recently released some images of the asteroid Vesta. To see more visit this article at NASA.
Is it really a SuperMoon? Or just a natural cycle? Today’s Full Moon (the Worm Moon) at 2:11 PM EDST, 28.8 Virgo, at perigee means at it’s closest point to Earth in 19 yr lunar cycle.
It was definitely bright last night–14% brighter than usual–and reminds us to “dance by the light of the silvery moon.”
This Full Moon is connected to the Vernal Equinox that occurs tomorrow, March 20th, with the Sun conjunct Uranus, as well as parallel Uranus. That means the Sun and Uranus experience a planetary eclipse while crossing a key point in the seasonal axis.
Sun + Uranus=good time for a dynamic change and to begin anything that requires widespread publicity. On a mundane level it should shift world consciousness to science and ways to save the planet. Oddly enough freedom fighting rebels (another word related to Uranus) in Libya are in the news as well as scientists teaching us how to avoid a nuclear meltdown. Hug a tree this weekend!
