Year’s last Supermoon

Haiku

“A super moon is the result of the full moon coinciding with the moon’s closest point of orbit in relation to the Earth, which is known as perigee. The result is that the moon is not only full, but looks closer to us and brighter than usual. On average, a super moon is seven percent bigger and 15 percent brighter than a full moon.

The May Super Flower Moon is the last super moon this year.”

    1. I have to go outside and down the walk to see the moon where I live as there’s quite a few trees around my place also. Forest City sounds like a nice place to live. I like trees.

      1. I like trees too. If you get up on a tall building here in London about all you can see is trees for a long way. I used to have a friend who had studied a lot about trees. She came from Alberta in an area that had very few trees. She taught me a lot about how to tell what kind of tree it is by leaves, bark, etc. Unfortunately I have forgotten a lot all these years later. But that doesn’t stop me from enjoying them and I do remember the odd thing so I still recognize some types of trees. It’s kind of fun.

      2. Oh that’s nice!
        My dad taught me a lot about trees, leaves, animal tracks, birds and nature. We lived in the country and used to go on walks a lot.
