[quote:Anonymous Coward 30657588:MV8yMDk2MDYyXzM1MzAxNDI1Xzc4QzEyMDQy] [quote:Anonymous Coward 12786780:MV8yMDk2MDYyXzM1Mjk3MTg4XzE5NzM5ODk2] You stupid fucks! go out and look at the moon more than once a month and you will see it has been this bright at least 12 times in the last two years. I swear this site is full of fuck ups. NOTHING WRONG HERE FOLKS FOR FUCKS SAKE!!!!!!!!!!!!!! [/quote] In part, but there is a secondary effect and this happens every December. On the winter solstice, for the northern hemisphere, the Sun is lowest in the sky. Since the full Moon is 180 degrees opposite the Sun, where is it every December? It is at its highest in the sky. Since it is higher in the sky in December than in June it will appear brighter. Technically, this is because we are seeing the Moon through more air as we look closer to the horizon. The term for this is air mass. When you look straight up you see through what is called one air mass. As you look more toward the horizon you are looking at a slant through the atmosphere, the air mass is greater. The more air mass the higher the opacity and the fainter an object appears. This is why the Sun seems brightest at noon, overhead, and why it is much dimmer at sunset, the light is going through a greater air mass and looks fainter. In summer, the Moon is 46 degrees farther south than in winter. Likewise, the Sun is 46 degrees farther north in summer than in winter. [/quote]
Anyone else have a good view of it tonight?
Almost hurts your eyes if you stare at it long enough.
This is now the 5th night the moon has had some kind of odd glow to it.
First the MSM said supermoon, and last I checked its something about ice crystals now.
