    Big Full Moon and Perigee Spring Tides
    From: Frank Reed
    Date: 2011 Mar 17, 01:34 -0700

    The Moon is full and at perigee on Saturday. Spring Tides will be moderately higher than normal, but perhaps of more interest for us, the SD of the Moon will be about as high as it gets and for a Full Moon that will make it quite the spotlight in the sky all night long.


    PS: And of course some folks on the Internet have ALREADY blamed the catastrophe in Japan on the Perigee Full Moon. For fans of Internet-driven paranoia, try this: add up September 11, 2001 (you know what that is) and March 10, 2011 (Japan earthquake) by mm, dd, yy: 09/11/01+03/10/11. You get 12/21/12, December 21, 2012, which, in case you haven't heard, is when the world is supposed to end. Pretty cool, if it weren't so creepy. Myself, I prefer four-digit years, so I guess the world doesn't end until the year 4012.
