  • The `Super Moon` and astral FTIR

    Tonight the Moon will appear 7% larger than normal and about 15% brighter. This is because the Moon will be the closest to Earth it has ever been since 1948 and won’t be this close again until 2034. As the Moon naturally varies its distance from the Earth throughout its elliptical orbit, other minor deviations in our planet’s movement around the Sun cause further changes in its ...
