NJ observes brighter sky with ‘supermoon’
A “supermoon,” as termed by astrologer Richard Nolle was visible to the residents of Hudson County and other places, the preceding night.
As per Nolle’s prediction, a brighter, fuller and closer new or full moon than usual can be observed by the people, this year.
Alignment of a perigee and a syzygy cause supermoons
As per the information given by NASA, supermoons are visible when a perigee and a syzygy are aligned.
Perigee refers to the point of the moon's orbit at which it is closest to the Earth, whereas syzygy refers to a full moon or new moon.
During supermoons, the perigee and syzygy may not perfectly coincide but may come very close to each other.
A link between the occurrence of supermoons and natural disasters was suggested by some people, who believed that supermoons may also cause tsunamis.
For instance, people have even linked Mar. 11 Touhoku earthquake and tsunami in Japan, to the occurrence of the supermoon.
However, as per the revelations made by the ‘Disover Magazine,’ there is no such evidence which connects supermoons to natural disasters.
