|Hazy red super moon over England in 2011|
Ok my nerd side is going to come out here, but I took some astronomy class back in college (that's astronomy the scientific study of stars as opposed to astrology, aka horoscopes) and I was blown away but the amazing details and especially the complexity and size of the universe. I get all giddy when cool things are happening in the heavens above and I wanted to point out that tonight, May 5th 2012, we will get a chance to see the Perigee moon, otherwise known as the SUPER MOON. Does it have a red cape and an "S" on it's chest, is it able to leap buildings in a single bound? Well, no. BUT it will appear 14% larger than normal, especially when it's low in the horizon. There is a great explanation of it here: Super Moon
So, if you are able, go outside later tonight and check this phenom out!
