Are you wondering if we meant the “Man of Steel”, Superman to be here? No, we meant the Supermoon, the full moon of 2013 will be here early Sunday.

This Sunday on June 23, the moon will reach the closest point to Earth in its orbit around Earth (perigee).

Some people believe that there will be high tides, people turning into wolves or crazy during the Supermoon. However, these are just stories. There is no reason to be afraid of this Supermoon and you should just enjoy the lunar show.

What is the opposite of perigee? Apogee –¬†farthest point in the satellite’s orbit around Earth.
