Big moon - level 2

Big moon - level 2

02-07-2013 06:00

Cameras captured the supermoon in Australia. The supermoon was bigger and brighter than the normal moon because it was closer to the earth. You can watch the supermoon annually.

The supermoon is not a scientific term. It was invented by NASA for people to make astronomy more popular. The right name for the supermoon is "the perigee moon".

It is documented that when there's a supermoon, earthquakes and volcanic eruptions occur more often. However, scientists say it is not true.

Interesting words: annually (every year), scientific (used in science), eruption (when volcano explodes).

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