Brightest supermoon in almost 69 years

The phenomenon known as the supermoon will reach its most luminescent in North America before dawn on Monday. It will reach its zenith in Asia and the South Pacific on Monday night. Across the international dateline in New Zealand, it will reach its brightest after midnight on Tuesday local time.

The moon orbits the Earth in an oval shape. The moon will be at its brightest this week because it is coming closer to the Earth along its elliptical orbit than at any time since January 1948. The supermoon will also bring stronger than usual high tides, followed by plunging low tides the next morning.

Viewers can expect to see a moon about 14 percent larger in diameter and about 30 percent brighter than when it’s at its furthest from the earth. It won’t be as big and bright again for another 18 years.

NASA says its closest approach will occur at 6:21 a.m. EST (1121 GMT) Monday when the moon comes within 221,523 miles (356,508 kilometers). That’s from the center of the Earth to the center of the moon. Full moon will occur at 8:52 a.m. EST (1352 GMT).

According to the astronomy website earthsky.org, the term supermoon entered usage five years ago when the closest full moon fell on March 19, 2011. The scientific term is perigee full moon.

In 2034, the moon will come even closer, within 221,485 miles. That, too, will be a supermoon. (AP)

did anyone ever talk about how ‘Here Comes A Thought’ totally reminded them of tweek n craig? ESPECIALLY tweek since he does seem to try and find his inner peace sometimes!

I also love how everyone just knows that Craig calms Tweek down, it has to be 100% canon

i hope dis hasn’t been done before ANNND i might color this later…

so i knew moana was great about hiring south pacific actors but i just found out that alan tudyk (who they were reluctant to cast but eventually gave the bit part of the rooster) is the only actor in the film with no polynesian descent????? and now i’m crying????? please let every movie with poc characters from here on out take a note from moana’s book

anon suggested: “First date”!

That just really left me with a lot of interpretation so I assume it’s just them on their first date? I’m imagining Tweek n Craig just trying a lot of couple stuff on their first real date but it’s just a mess lol

embarrassed craig for life

Here’s the thing: I’m not religious myself, but I get Frankie Boyle’s point about disliking celebrity atheists like Ricky Gervais and finding them snooty and obnoxious. (Boyle is an atheist himself.)

I was reading Trevor Noah’s book and he brings up a great point: In Apartheid South Africa, Christian missionaries were the only ones willing to open up schools and give black people an education that consisted of things like art and history and politics. 

Basically, all the things the government didn’t want them learning. (They wanted them learning about farming) Then when they ordered them to stop; the missionary schools flat-out refused. 

“And your reward for all that? Ricky Gervais looks down his nose at you.”
