Biggest ‘Supermoon’ Phenomenon on May 5, 2012

Supermoon

‘Supermoon’ is a situation when the moon is slightly (about 50.000 km) closer to Earth in its orbit than on average, at least from our perspective on Earth. On May 5, the moon will appear about 14% larger and 30% brighter.

The ‘Supermoon’ could cause tides to rise around the world as the moon’s close ‘fly past’ exerts 42% more tidal force. But this is nothing to worry about, according to America’s NOAA space-weather predicting agency. In most places, lunar gravity at perigee pulls tide waters only a few centimeters (an inch or so) higher than usual.

Not all ‘Supermoons’ are the same powerful, neither by the intensity nor by the duration of their effect. It has caused many discussions in scientific circles about the full moon on May 5, 2012 which is going to be one of the most powerful in years.

‘Supermoon’ is often associated with massive natural disasters, as well as social uprisings,has made Nasa create a video that explains what is going to happen on 5 and 6 May, 2012.

The best time to look is when the Moon is near the horizon. That is when illusion mixes with reality to produce a truly stunning view.

    ive never understood what the Cause of super moon is. How the hell can its orbit periodicly bring it some 50k closer? what’s creating such an eratic orbit?
    Any one?
    People may be content to just know that its happening.
    I need to know what causes such events TO happen.

      Varakienen, I will try to answer your question as to what is causing these catastrophes. Hope I have not misunderstood your question. It is in understanding the cause that we can develop a solution!
      For centuaries man has denied God exists.
      Man worships & chases wealth.
      Man falsely established themseleves as preachers, masters, teachers etc. who have infact mislead mankind with false beliefs in order to steal their souls; false teachings regarding their food/health to make them diseased for economy; promote fornication and all that is evil to be good; prevent any ethical person from a job of prominence, etc.
      Besides, the name of God which is Yahweh has been removed from the so called ‘holy’ scripture. The name has also been banned in churches.
      For centuaries Yahweh has given man time to repent/reform. Instead, evil has grown to the extent when immoral behaviour is accepted as the norm. People do not know what is right or wrong. Children in school, innocent minds are shown how to use a condom and encouraged to have sex.
      This is accepted by society.
      Trousers worn today dangling on their hips, showing off their underpants and flesh though an utter disgrace is accepted.
      Yahweh’s Natural Law has been changed by mans who has created their own law. Yahweh’s Law never requires updating. Mans law opposses Yahweh’s Law.
      Deceit has been metaculously developed. Strategy for implementation is controlled through the education and heirachy system who also changed the calender altering the new year which according to Yahweh’s calender is spring. The days of the week have also been altered to prevent people from knowing the actual seventh day of the week which is Saturday and not Sunday.
      People do not know the start and end of the day and rely on their watches instead of sunset to sunset for the beginning and end of a day.
      Man has been taught to buy , sell and eat FLESH & BLOOD for greed/ gluttony. Why? Mans has been taught killing and such consumption is good for his body. It is through such incompatiable consumption the body gets diseased with cancers etc ; premature ageing and death.
      This creates flourishing economies, flesh/blood trade, pharmaceuticals etc. In the UK, the NHS I understand is the worlds largest employer!!
      Now the souls who are persecuted, shake heavens, crying to Yahweh for justice.
      Accordingly, Yahweh will come, in his wrath and destroy all evil. They will be uprooted and consumed.
      On the other hand, those who obey His law will be saved, despite the earth eventually disappearing.
      Great calamity will befall all those who reject the truth; oppress the innocent, preached false teachings etc.
      All things are according to Yahweh’s plan.
      There is nothing to fear.
      Obey His Law for peace and harmony.
      The solution, in my opinion is to focus on saving ones soul.
      Everyone for himself.
      Ignore all else. Nothing else matters.
      Focus on what you can control not what is out of ones control.
      Peace to you and hope this answers your question.
      Should I have offended you by this comment I cannot apologise as these are my views and do not impose my views on anyone. After all, we are all from different seed, hence the difference.

    • The short answer is the “eliptical” orbit of the moon at perigee, a monthly event, occures at the same time as a full moon, different monthly cycle. “Cause” implies a chain where as the events discribed including those anomolies mentioned are co-incidend not causitive or cause/effect related.
      It does seem to be an aspect of curent human nature to observe multiple co-incident effects and assume there in lies cause. Liner thinking has clouded knowledge of cycles you once possesed. Time itself has fallen victum. Not a body in the universe “oribits” or ever has returned in any period of time to any location in space/time it has occupied before. All bodies/form/matter vibrates in what can 2 diminsionally only be discribed by a wave function, 3 diminsionally the wave is a spiral, 4 diminsionally the wave function transition is what you experience as time, 5 diminsionally and beyond the wave function mearly extends beyond the 3-space constraints of Planck length and speed of light in free space, much as human vission is but a small portion of the known EM spectrum. If it is cause you wish to understand old friend, understand this…it has never been as so oft credited Aristotal, “about space and the motion in it”…but about “motion, and the space it happens in”…a subtil, yet profound difference…the root of most misdirected science of this time. Come to understand this one thing, and be freed from the constraints of it…its a big place streched over vast time. Ride the wave. We rest a short while and continue on to the as yet enfolded…be well

    • elliptical orbit coupled in with wave motion resulting in a higher peak at certain points along the wave cycle, similar to the way waves have one wave larger every 3 or 7 waves (depending which studies you follow), the elliptical orbit results in two peak periods where excess centrifugal force is reined in by gravitational force and kept on as GPE or gravitational potential energy, after a certain number of rotations this GPE accumulates and the slingshot action is increased on the peaks and decreased in the mid term pattern before, again returning to the norm.

    Well, I gotta say, they oiled themselves out of that one…no, really. I have never been to a hospital that did not put in extra beds on all floors just before a full moon. I have never met a cop who did not say he was working his buns off because..”Loook up there..full moon.” The looney rap is also valid. The emotional matrix in humans is well known to become agitated during ful moon cycles..we are mostly water after all. This was a ..”Stay calm.” announcement…Pretty smooth actually..

    &->Vara-I am really facinated by the concept that the moon is a designed satilite..I have run into some physics discussions that really give that indication. The how and why that possibility exists never included the who brought it into existance. The game goes on..great fun…

    Ah, so it Is a factor of an eliptical orbit which coincides with a full moon alignment. K.
    Wasnt sure if for some reason, occasionally and randomly, the moon simply comes closer to earth for reasons un known.
    Thank you all.

    @Les Hulse->Ok? Earth has two moons…Now, since I am old, how does that work? Could that be the astroid belt that was once a moon? Perhaps it is Mercury which got knocked out of place when Venus streaked into our solar system and got stuck…Need some help here…Please reply.

      No, earth does Not actually have two moons, but it does have more than one stellar satellite.
      To qualify for a moon an object must have a certain minimum mass.
      In Most cases, but not all, this mass is sufficient to shape its own body into a sphere. Mars moons diemos and phobos seeming to be the exception to this rule.
      We do Not have two moons, but we have found several reasonable sized asteroids in orbit of us at a great distance. We even have more than one sharing earths orbit of the sun.
      So, No to actual second moon hun.

    The asteroid belt was a full on sized planet and likely more than one that was torn asunder.
    Ancient writings and lore tell stories that murduck, the destroyer, Nibiru had a hand in this long long ago.
    But it would likely be an event which happened before virtibrate life formed on earth.
    It would have had to be at Least hundreds of millions of years if not more than a billion for the debris to fully stretch out and ring the sun as a field.
    A common misconception is that the field is densely packed. The truth is that most pieces of the field cannot be seen even if using a man sized portable home telescope while standing on one chunk, and using the viewing device to seek the next nearest. there are hundreds and thousands of miles gaps between most of the debris.

    • Hey Varakienen,

      That’s only according to Zacharia Sitchin’s interpretation of Marduk and Tiamat and the whole Nibiru/Annunaki and early hominids cloning… theory.

      The Annunaki rebelled after working for 40 days to mine gold on Earth so they cloned the first humans instead, I mean really that sounds quite ridiculous and fanciful but I’m still willing to keep open minded.

      Why do you believe his theory which has very little support if any and has been described as “pseudoscience”?
      How are you so sure Nibiru exists mate? What day did it all click and make sense to you or is it something you wanted believe and just needed a “push” in the right direction?

      I have a friend with the same belief, he has no facts to offer me though maybe you do? I don’t think its Planet X either but hrrrmm..

      Cheers

      • Im not one to bash the nibiru theory as i do believe that there is a planet stuck in a binary star orbit as we have observed before in other galaxies.

        What i don’t believe is the hype of it causing global destruction and flipping all the planets, purely for the reason that we are still here billions of years later and we have no signs nor evidence pointing toward it colliding with other planets.

        If were all hypothesizing what nibiru/planet x etc etc, could have been, isn’t it possible that is did exist and collided with a planet destroying itself and the other planet resulting in the asteroid belt we have today? and before rebuking that with ancient texts etc, we have no idea how they came across such knowledge other than their reports of higher beings and other sentient lifeforms which can be taken with conjecture.

        Id like to hear other peoples thoughts on what nibiru could be/could have been, no citation of sources needed but based at least in what can be observed would be nice🙂

        Its more likely a Dwarf star with full on planets in orbit of it has been passing through our system for nearly Ever.
        That Long ago one of these planets in tow smashed into one of our systems regular planets creating the astroid belt. (This means the mass of TWO planets, not one.) NOT the dwarf star it self doing so.
        It May also be a misconception that the annunaki came from the dwarf star it self, or that the star it self is named Nibiru.
        It could be just as likely that one of those planets in its orbit is the actual home to anunaki.
        I dont actually see a race living on a gass giant/collapsed failed star/what ever. I see it more likely they inhabit a planet that comes with it. probably more than one.
        This is how ever, Personal theory, and there is little in the records to support it beyond innuendo and hints. but translation may also be a problem factor. Meh, it just seems like the correct way to think on it.

        Nibiru / planet X, and many other names are witnessed in more than merely one or two authors books.
        Almost every single ancient culture capable of some form of record keeping or the passing of stories down through the tellings, which is what History is by the way, (derived from the words His- story)
        has passed similar to exact accounts of things like, the great flood, and the coming of the destroyer.
        Its NOT only according to Daniken or Stitchen alone.
        They are merely the ones whom first brought it to our attention en-mass.
        They both in fact draw a great deal of their own base knowledge from many Many other archeologists and researchers before them. Its almost like saying,…. follow the Money.
        If you follow their researches you will find that they were not the first and only ones to put forth these notions. They were merely the first to have captured public attention.
        One stumbling block they have all encountered how ever is confiscation of recovered artifacts, closing down of dig sites which turn up destroyed soon after, and a great deal of other shenanigans perpetrated by governments whom already Knew a great deal of this material and don’t want it being made publicly known. such activities have become pretty much a commonplace happening in many modern digs and excavations that prove to threaten the positions of “established” history and or biblical events.
        Bret.
        I cant give you proof any more than you can prove that Nibiru Doesn’t exist. All I can say is that there is Monstrous amounts of evidence to support its existence, where as there is No evidence in and of it self to support that it does Not.
        Evidence is Not proof. And proof is subjective and in the eye of the beholder. What is fact or proof to one person does Not constitute the same for another.
        You will either have weighed the evidences for your self and come to a conclusion, or you have not.

      • Hey Vara,

        As always with this kind of subject matter I’m left with more questions than answers 🙂

        Keep digging and searching I suppose, I just hope one day it will be visible to the naked eye because it would make the full moon perigee which has just happened look very very insignificant haha.

        The fact that I visit this website every day for new stories means I’m more open minded than most people I associate with.

        And one of the greatest assets I’ve taken from being at University has been “critical thinking” which I think should be taught in all levels of schooling and not just at a tertiary level.

        Its made me more open to the Nibiru/Annunaki theory, and I do think its possible but perhaps some of it has been lost in translation, but as they say the “Truth is Stranger than fiction”, and could all be true.

        One day I may have to eat my own words of doubt though.

        Cheers for the input Vara

    • Nibiru was also known as Marduk..the name given to the eldest son of Enki.
      Enki and Enlil were both sons of Anu the supreme leader of Nibiru.
      Both came to our planet Earth in the past to ensure comprehensive mining of precious metal “Gold” very much needed for Nibiru’s “ozone” layer at one time long ago.

  8. If a planet came into our solar system wouldn’t it affect the surrounding planets? Upset the balance of things? Is there changes to Mars, Jupiter, Saturn ect? What’s happening to our sun?
    Some people predict earthquakes from planetary alignments. Throw an inbound planet into the mix and what happens?

    There’s evidence of prior pole shifts. What made the earth shift it’s poles?
    Does all this happen for no reason? I think not.

    Ladies and gentlemen—I boldly announce and recommend that you dash down to your local library and search out any title written by IMMANUEL VELIKOVSKY–The titles read- WORLDS IN COLLISION [1950] – AGES IN CHAOS -[vol 1 – 1952] – EARTH IN UPHEAVAL [1955] – THE PEOPLES OF THE SEA: [Sequel to AGES IN CHAOS, vol. 1–(to be published in 1961).

    There are several others dealing with South America…This stuff has to do with major earth catastrophy brought about by extra-solar system bodies and his history –while mostly theoretical as the result of no high technology back up – was such that Einstien gave him much time for one on one discussion and validated his concepts just prior to his death..Velikovsky met with enormous argument in the scientific community and is to this day discounted by many astronomers who have not yet gotten the whole bit about the pole shift phenomena and the catostrophic effect it could have. The base theory is that things happen slowly. Velikovsky was the counter argument and his data is based in solid information and witnessing.

    I really recommend him because he was science based in the hard nosed in the box tradition. In his biblical research he kept finding catastrophy references which were summarily denied by the scientific community. He dug in and began the hunt through archeology and then moved on to sites where the physical evidence was clearly indictive of massive earthchange events.

    He was the fore runner for Sitchien and on…Please remember that Sitchien was also a biblical scholar who began his investigation from biblical reference. Both were Jewish scholars from the finest universities and while Sitchien went into the ET factors..Velikovsky was focused on EARTH catastrophy as opposed to organic evolutionary development although he tracked the animal population in search for effects. In this he found enormous animal kill off sites where the remains were intact enough to see that they had been instantly affected by what ever had occured.

    This stuff is facinating reading – especially in this situation. I got a big he-haw from an astronomer guy I know when I brought the subject up. “Oh, are you talking about the guy who suggested that Venus came into our solar system as a huge comet like fire ball? Right!?” He is not open to even investigating..Thats alright, he wears a pencil pocket and his glasses are so thick you cannot see his eyes…Not his fault, he figures if he answered all the questions on his classroom test right, he had all the answers there are to have.

    @->NINNIE-I sure do get your point..We are so small, we are as the grains of sand on a distant beach. Anyone who has been in an airplane looking up and down at night, walks away with a life changing experience. Above is the galaxy glittering and clear–lights against lights, light years in seperation. Below, the land is glittering, lights moving. Lights forming patterns. Silluettes and shadows, dancing, slipping out of view…Only if the moment comes when one looks down at there hands is the message clear. How small we are! How insignifigant, and yet our energy glitters in multicolors, sliding through corridors of darkness, dashing slowly and yet unable to be tracked.

    But, the moon is not sand. It is hollow. It was put there by the unknown. Its purpose is to keep the planet stable. It rings like a bell. The chinese threw a couple of rockets at it and it tipped a bit, vibrating with sounds noone one has spoken of hearing. How could such a thing be? Does this tell us we are no accident? I suspect so. Insignificant in our wandering but important enough for something. Nameste, marina -9:56pm-edt – 5/4/12 -USA
