Supermoon Coffs

Super dose of lunar loopy

IF A full moon sends you a little loopy, batten down the hatches because tomorrow's astronomical delight could send you to an entirely new level of loop.

SuperMoon is among us, and for those who are furiously Googling to find out what that means, it is when the moon shines 16% brighter than usual and is 356,955km from Earth.

Being one of its closest visits in 18 years, the moon will be visible at 1.30pm - unless of course it decides to hide behind the clouds as it has so many times before.

Along with the SuperMoon, tomorrow night there will also be a full moon, so that should keep those with witchy tendencies happy for another 29.531 days.

Scientists have assured the SuperMoon's appearance has no connection to natural disasters, despite it showing up one week before Japan's 9.0 earthquake last year, or the Hunter Valley floods of 1955 or the New England Hurricane in 1938, both of which happened within days of the SuperMoon.

So, if you've got your camera at the ready at 1.30pm tomorrow and can snap an epic photo of the moon that is so super, send it in to edit@warwickdailynews.com.au.
