The Supermoon which is scheduled to hit earth by March 19 creates several predictions of earthquake, storms, volcanic eruptions and tsunami. According to astrologer Richard Nolle, the phenomenon may cause huge events that may worsen the natural catastrophes.
Supermoon is a full moon or new moon where the moon comes closest to the alignment of the Earth. This coming March 19, the moon will be in the closest distance to the Earth after nearly 18 years. At a distance of 356,577 kms, the moon will be in alignment to the Earth and to the Sun.
Some speculates that the 8.9 magnitude earthquake in Japan and the giant tsunami were results of such movement of the moon. However, astrology experts do not support the idea due to the weak correlation of events.
Amidst the speculations of adversities, John Bellini of US Geological Survey said that the Supermoon on March 19, 2011 will have a small to no effect on the earth’s activity. The effects are minor that you would not even feel the Supermoon coming.
But with the recent events occurring all over the world, the bottom line is still to be vigilant, alert and ready for anything that may happen.
The last Supermoon occurred last January 30, 2010 and the next will still be on November 14, 2016.
