#SuperMoon Was A #SuperBust

March 20, 2011 Leave a comment

Last night I mentioned the supermoon and was all excited to see it in its amazing glory.

Maybe, it was the fact I was in Toronto and we are at a higher latitude than that amazing picture I posted from Washington, DC. Maybe I had to catch the Super Moon at ‘moon rise’ and not in the middle of the night.

I don’t know but what I do know is I wasn’t alone in being disappointed in the Super Moon. Other people in my Twitter stream were similarly unimpressed. Oh well, guess I will just have to wait until 2029.


Tonight, Tonight: When The Moon Hits Your Eye, Like A Big-A Pizza Pie; That’s Amore!

Tonight there’s a “Super Moon” to be seen all across the world. It is the closest the moon has been to the Earth since 1993 and won’t be again for almost another 20 years, according to things I have read on the Interiorwebs like this article from National Geographic (where the picture above is from) and this article from WKYC in Cleveland, OH. I also suggest if you’re single tonight is the night you head to a pizza parlor after going out and maybe true love will find you or you’ll find them looking at the moon, just ask Dean Martin who said that, “when the moon hits your eye, like a big-a pizza pie that’s amore” (Amore is Italian for ‘love’). If you have never heard this iconic song from 1952 see the video below.

The fact that there is a Super Moon obviously has Twitter abuzz with the hashtag #supermoon as a Trending Topic in Toronto, Canada, the United States, and Worldwide.

According to WKYC who got their info from CNN this super “perigee moon” is 14% larger and 30% brighter than the average full moon so get outside and check out the moon tonight! Maybe I will finally be able to see those humanoid aliens that have been living on the Moon since at least the turn of the 19th to 20th Century! (see Smashing Pumpkins video of Tonight, Tonight below) I have been looking at the moon at night for years waiting to see them jumping around. I have also wondered why Neil Armstrong didn’t see them during the Moon Landing…my theory is because he scared the crap out of them – – after all we’re talking about aliens who get vaporized after Tom Kenny and Jill Talley smack them umbrellas, can you imagine what a guy in a spacesuit must have looked like to them?

Enjoy the moon tonight as I the next time it will be this close to Earth will be 2029! I wonder why they didn’t try to plan a mission to the Moon to land today…wouldn’t now have been the closest time requiring the least amount of fuel for them to get there? Maybe they should start planning a trip for 2029 now. Or maybe NASA is worried those aliens won’t be so scared of a human in a space suite next time and NASA can’t afford any umbrellas. Then again, maybe that music video lied to us…unless the Moon had an oxygen atmosphere back in the late 1800s and early 1900s then somehow lost it. Nah! Billy Corgan, James Iha, D’arcy Wretzky, and Jimmy Chamberlin wouldn’t lie to us! Would they?
