If you’re looking up at the moon this evening thinking it looks bigger than usual, you’re looking at the beginning of a supermoon that will reach full maturity tomorrow night (November 14th).

This lunar phenomenon happens when the moon’s elliptical orbit brings the celestial giant closer to the Earth due to its oval shape. ;)

Nasa says a supermoon like the one on Monday evening won’t be seen again until November 2034.

Happy howling at the moon ...

Cleverly worded OP, clearly written as a distraction from the f*cking enormous Pleiadian space centre orbiting Earth. Wake the f*ck up.

Hmmmm....you decide :p

New Zealand earthquake

Nigel Antony Gray warned in a Facebook posted dated November 6 for people to 'watch for a major earthquake' on November 14 and a 'couple of days either side'


Tectonic scientists have predictably (!) debunked his prophecy as 'mere coincidence'...

Any fans of Robert Heinlein out there? He reckoned the moon is the most valuable strategic asset in the solar system.

(1) You'd have a 24 hr earth observation station.

(2) Conventional missiles and even Nukes fired at the your base on the moon would be ineffective; no atmosphere to support a shock wave.

(3) The moon's escape velocity is about one fifth that of earth. The energy required to launch a nuke from the moon would require less energy.

30% bigger than normal....well as it appears to the eye :)
Yes.
A major part of the NASA moon landing mission was to insert chemical probes into the lunar surface and to bury refuse from the space module.
All this was kept secret from the public.

Now this buried detritus is decomposing and expanding making the moon bigger.

The figure of 30% expansion is not accurate.

Is this where the phrase howling moon licker comes from?...
