super moon day!

Today is super moon day, the day when the moon is at its closest distance to earth. The super moon happens once a year, and this year, although not as close as last year's, it will be 356,953km from the Earth at 1pm today. (Last year, it was 356,577km.)

Exactly what would happen, just wait a few days and you will see.

According to news.com.au, here's an interesting piece of prediction.

Victorian amateur weather forecaster Kevin Long said all major extreme weather events of the past century were the result of the moon and other planets. Mr Long has predicted a major flood for 2028 and a major dry period for the years 2018 to 2022 related to the position of the planets. Super tides are predicted with this super moon. Tides around Australia will have a 47.6 per cent greater gravitational pull, said a National Tidal Centre spokesman.

Last year (2011), tsunami near Japan happened around super moon; the 2005 Pacific Tsunami occurred around where the moon is close to earth. A bit further back, Cyclone Tracy in Darwin, Australia in 1974; Hunter Valley floods in 1955; New England hurricane in 1938 all occurred around super moon.

Oh, those forecasts (based on the moon and stars are historically more accurate the Domesday which is said to be based on Don's trusted Bible.

Take extra care unless you live in Don's beautiful Boston and picturesque Quincy which is known to be natural disaster free.
