Nevertheless, in anticipation of the March 19, , full moon, somebody doing some research dredged up Nolle's "supermoon" definition and launched what I refer to as the "supermoon syndrome. For years, astronomers classified a full moon that coincided with perigee as a "perigean full moon," a term that received little or no fanfare.
Now, it seems that every time a full moon coincides with perigee, it is referred to as a supermoon. Once a year, the moon turns full within several hours of perigee; after next Tuesday, the next time this will occur will be on April 7, And yet, last month's full moon, on Jan. Even some reputable astronomy sites endorse this definition. To the casual stargazer, a supermoon looks similar to other full moons. If you step outside and look at the moon on Tuesday night and expect to see something special, you'll likely be disappointed.
At least last month's so-called supermoon was accompanied by a total lunar eclipse. Still, tons of images are posted to the internet in advance of a supermoon, depicting exceedingly large, full moons from images taken with telephoto lenses, implying that the moon is going to look amazingly large in the sky. At its closest on Tuesday, the moon will be , miles , km from Earth.
But that's only 7. So, while Tuesday's moon will indeed be the "biggest" in apparent size, unless you catch the moon when it's either rising or setting — and appearing briefly larger than normal because of the famous "moon illusion" — Tuesday's full moon will look pretty much like any other full moon. Full moon on Tuesday will occur at a. EST GMT — during the daytime, with the moon below the horizon — so Americans will not get to see the exact moment that the moon is full.
When the moon comes above your local horizon on Tuesday evening, technically you'll be looking not at a "full" moon, but a waning gibbous moon. Though a full moon theoretically lasts just a moment, that moment is imperceptible to ordinary observation. My husband is planning to have knee replacement surgery in the near future.
I would like to know what days are the best to have surgery. My Mother never did anything without consulting the Almanac first! She is now 94 and in the nursing home, so I can't ask her. Please help me out! I am an RN who takes care of orthopedic patients every work day.
My suggestion is to have surgery early in the week Monday or Tues , if possible. Then your hubby can be discharged hopefully prior to the weekend. It is not necessary to consult the moon, just advise him to be an active participant in his care. A word to the wise: walk, walk, walk!
My husband has had both knees done he can climb a ladder with 50 lb bag feed he is a rancher. He can carry large hay bales. He gets on the roof of our house.
