This month's perigee moon or supermoon is going to be the biggest full moon of the year and will occur on Sunday (May 6) at 11:34 a.m (0334 May 6), although the moon will still appear at its full on the day before and after.

This happens when the moon will swing within 221,802 miles (356,955 kilometers) of Earth — its closest approach of the entire year.

Hmmm... is the time stated correct? I thought 11.34am is near to mid-day, can we still see the moon?

The perigee moon will be closest to the Earth at 0334 GMT, which makes it 11.34 am here on Sunday. Those in the West, esp. US will get the best view of it as it will be night on Saturday, however we will still get a good sized view as the moon will still appear at its full on the day before and after.

Watch the NASA video to understand this.

ps

BTW, the BEWARE is to caution on the natural, supernatural and psychological effects of a Super Moon!! :)

Is it true that in China ,people living in certain province are more susceptible to the effect of 'gravitational pull ' that can alter their personality at the peak moment. ?

There are nasty jokes targeting people living in a particular island in China has, demostrated more on this 'alter personality'.

For Subang Jaya/USJ residents, the best theoretical viewing time for the SuperMoon of 2012 is 12.39am May 6th; at which point we will technically be in a Full Moon phase, and it will be closest at some 351,165 km from us.

At the exact time of perigee, the moon will be ~362,698 km away from Subang Jaya, and so even if we could see it (assuming we had x-ray eyes or something like that :grin2:), it wouldn't be a SuperMoon for us. In fact, the next full moon on the 4th of June would be bigger.

5th May (or on the 15th day of 4th month in the lunar calendar) is the Vesak Day - a day that commemorating the Birth, Enlightenment and Death of Lord Buddha.

An auspicious sign in this holy day? :) :) :) Namo Shakyamuni Buddha, 南无本师释迦牟尼佛.

Very cloudy and overcast these few days. Can't see the darn moon. Remember that the wood "lunacy" has its origin in the word "luna" = "moon". So we are all luna crazy - lunatics? :D

was at cherating last nite...Full moon? Aye. Bright? my derriere! Super my double derriere...same same olde moon same same olde size too.

this super-my-derriere moon appeared rather misty though the low level puffs of cloud were moving along nicely...maybe the stratospheric clouds are denying Bolehlanders for enjoying a BERSIH view...Maybe the damn cloud-gods had been given a hiway kontrak to do what it did last nite...:eek:

Just negotiate with the car owners, get your regular car technician to make repair then don't need to lose NCD or fine rm 300.

That's what happened when somebody bump my rear last few months.

Wasn't aware of the supermoon on May 6th. But, noticed that the moon was larger than usual even on the 4th of May, when view above the clouds (inflight), mistakenly thinking it to be some other planet like Jupiter or Saturn ;). Then a few days later while strolling along d coastal front, noticed someone capturing a shot of the bright ball hanging 45deg above the horizon just as the clould passed over it's path, and with a camera fitted with a (telescopic) zoomer. Then when I saw the shot reviewed, those craters on the moon's surface was unbelievably clear, and vividly visible.:cool:
