According to NASA, May’s full Moon is a "Super Moon,” and will be as much as 14 percent bigger and 30 percent brighter than other full Moons of 2012. Known as a "perigee moon," it will line up with Earth and the sun to become brilliantly full.
Super moons were blamed for many things in history - hospital admissions are said to increase, as does the crime rate, and people act oddly. In the Middle Ages the full Moon was thought to cause lunacy, a word that comes from the Latin term for Moon.
To me, Super Moon brings luck and a majestic night sky.
Have look out the window tonight and admire the beauty in the sky.
