“SuperMoon” Coming This Sunday at 7 A.M.
Yes, it’s true — on Sunday, the moon will be full and at the point of its monthly cycle when it’s closest to earth. Put the two things together and you get … SuperMoon. Slate says you won’t notice a difference in cheeserock size, and if you do, it’ll be due to the astronomical equivalent of a placebo effect — because you were told it would look bigger. Still, if you’re so inclined, tune into the sky at 7:22 a.m., when the moon will be closer to Philadelphia than it has been in 413 days.
