Big moon - level 1

02-07-2013 06:00

People in Australia saw the supermoon. The supermoon was closer to earth so it was bigger and brighter than normal. People can see it every year.

The supermoon is a name for the moon for people. NASA invented it. They wanted something interesting for people. But the right name is the "perigee moon".

People say the bad things happen when there's the supermoon. These things are things like the moving of the ground. But scientists say that it's not true.

Interesting words: bright (it sends a lot of light), invent (make something new), scientist (clever person who is an expert in something).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
