Will you be looking at the moon this Saturday night? March 19th there will be a lunar perigee, otherwise known as a supermoon. Hope it isnt cloudy out- I want to SEE this.

Some astrologers and even astronomers are using the term supermoon to describe the March 19, 2011 full moon. What makes it super is that – on the day of the March 2011 full moon – the moon will also be closest to Earth for the month. The March 19 full moon will be 221,567 miles from Earth, in contrast to the moon's average distance of about 239,000 miles. No full moon will be this close to Earth again until November 14, 2016.

The moon is full every month, and – over the course of every month – there is a connection between full moon and earthly tides. At full moon, the sun, Earth, and moon lie more or less along a line in space. At these times, the gravity of the sun and moon are reinforcing each other. That's why, every month around the time of full moon, people along the coast experience maximum high (and low) tides known as spring tides. Actually, there are two spring tides each month, one at full moon and the other at new moon.

What does this mean for the March nineteenth moon? Nothing at all.  

Just that I want to take pics of it. estatic
