Spent a quiet evening on the shore of Penobscot Bay waiting for the Super Moon to rise. Super Moon? Wikipedia to the rescue: “A supermoon is the coincidence of a full moon or a new moon with the closest approach the Moon makes to the Earth on its elliptical orbit, resulting in the largest apparent size of the moon’s disk as seen from Earth. The technical name is the perigee-syzygy of the Earth-Moon-Sun system”.
Perigee-syzygy.. sounds like something we could add to one of our playsets… hmm.
