Interesting educational video explaining the super moon a little over a month away in May 2012. A couple of the points were interesting, such as the word “lunacy” (lunar) coming from the folklore of strange things happening under a full moon. The couple centimeters of tidal change also surprised me. It was less than I thought considering the gravitational pull would scientifically be greater when the moon is closer to the earth; obviously not that much different? Anyway, the science.nasa.gov YouTube video is worth watching.
