Weekend Mountain Blogging: Supermoon

The moon rising over the Tuxer Alpen mountain range.

Tonight we’re having not just any full moon but a “supermoon”, so called because it’s uncommonly close to Earth right now. Not only does it appear larger and brighter than usual, but its effect on the tides will be stronger because of the extra kick of gravitational pull.

Considering how my week’s been, actually, this explains a lot.

    Too many clouds here! But we did have some amazingly high tides on the river. And we just happened to be on the road a lot, so the other effects and pure general craziness were amply evident.

    I do believe we’re affected in ways science hasn’t put a name to yet.
