Super Moon March 19 2011: Is the Cycle Connected to Disasters?
The Super Moon on March 19 2011 Will Mean the Moon is Closer to the Earth Than It's Been Since 1992
The super moon 2011 will mean that it will be brighter and larger in the sky than other full moons, but some believe that the super moon is connected to natural disasters.
For many experts, that is a false association, and they say that any kind of cycle connected to natural disasters is just a coincidence, and the moon has no effect on any flood or earthquake going on on the earth.
Past super moons have been connected to the Indonesian earthquake in 2005, and a massive flood in Australia in 1954.
Says John Bellini, a geophysicist at the U.S. Geological Survey: "A lot of studies have been done on this kind of thing by USGS scientists and others. They haven't found anything significant at all."
On March 19 2011, the moon will be 221,567 miles (356,577 kilometers) away from the earth, and according to Yahoo News, one astrologer Richard Nolle called this moon an 'extreme super moon', and thinks that it may cause a natural disaster.
What do you think? Could the super moon of 2011 cause any natural disaster?
