Anyway, in a couple of days, another supermoon will occur. A supermoon, by definition, is when the Earth, moon and sun are all in a line at the same time that the moon is at its closest approach to Earth. To be a supermoon, the moon has to be either full or new, or else the "line" mentioned above would not be in effect. This supermoon will take place on Sept. 27.
無論如何,在幾天內,另一個超級月亮會發生。一個超級月亮,顧名思義,是當地球、月亮和太陽同時間在同一線上,即月球是最接近地球時。成為超級月亮,月球要是滿或新的,否則上面提及的“線”不會生效,這次的超級月亮將於9月27日發生。
Basically, the supermoon causes an increase of the gravitational pull on the Earth by the two celestial bodies that influence the gravitational pull the most, the sun and the moon. When these bodies are lined up, such as during a new or full moon, the two gravitational pulls of these bodies act in concert on the Earth. That is why the tides are astronomically higher during a full or new moon. When the sun and moon are not lined up, they cancel each other out somewhat. When the moon is at perigee (its closest pass to the Earth), the gravitational pull of the moon on the Earth is also slightly stronger. So all of these facts cause an increased gravitational pull on the Earth during a supermoon.

Supermoons are not rare. At least two, or perhaps a half dozen, occur each year. So, this phenomenon is not unusual or unheard of.

Unashamedly, I am not an expert on the supermoon. Astrologer Richard Nolle coined the term in 1979 and is the "man" when it comes to all aspects of the supermoon. Please see this article about him and the supermoon by clicking here. You can also visit his terrific site by clicking here.

As mentioned before, some people believe that the supermoon may play a role in severe weather or seismic events. Daniel Vogler, AccuWeather Astronomy expert added, "There will as usual be an increase in quakes within the +-3 day window. If sunspot 1289 picks up intensity, expect more of what happened in Canada."
