It’s a Bird, It’s a Plane, It’s Super Moon!

If you looked up in the sky last night, you’d have spotted “super moon” – so named for the serendipitous occurrence of a full moon on the night the satellite passes closest to Earth in its orbit. Wikipedia says the official name for this is the “perigee-syzygy of the Earth-Moon-Sun system,” which sounds like something one of the guys on “Big Bang Theory” would say.

This photographer gets an “A” for effort (bringing back a photo of the moon on the rise) and an “A” for science, but the grammar miss? Wider than a mile.

There's some bad grammar on the rise. (Click image to enlarge.)

  1. I took a few photos of the moon but they are not blog-worthy!
    I overexposed the pictures and each moon shot looks like a flashlight shining on a black piece of paper.
    Next time I’ll get Tim to help. He’s much better at picking the correct exposures for nighttime pics.
    The moon looked great through my binoculars though!

  2. Another fan of the “Big Bang Theory”? Here’s the thing: I had two semesters of college physics and I still have no idea what those guys are saying! (Of course, my college physics days were a long time ago…).

    I was out there on Saturday night with my binoculars and camera, to see the moon on ITS closest approach to earth. I believe this happens maybe once a year? But bad language happens all the time, as evidenced by your post!

    • Did you capture any photos of super moon? Will they be on your blog?

      Two semesters of college physics – you are brave!
