After weeks of wait, the occasion is finally here. Supermoon 23 June 2013 has arrived and you can watch live streaming on Slooh.Com on time

Supermoon 2013 is finally here and there is a sort of unprecedented enthusiasm surrounding it across the world. Almost everyone wants to witness it and no one wants to postpone it for the next year. To be true, the super moon 2013 has started appearing in many parts of the world and it is already visible in Australia in full glory of it.

Though it is still almost a full day when it will arrive in United States, the interest is certainly very high there. The good thing is that Slooh will broadcast it live when it begins here. But that is still around 18 hours away and given the sort of enthusiasm surrounding it, I am sure almost everyone will like to go out and witness it by being a part of it, instead of just sitting indoors and watching it live on television or laptops.

Though for people who don’t have time to move out and spend hours watching it with friends and family, this may give an opportunity just to have a look at it and feel it. But to enjoy it completely, you need to be close to nature.

For most of the people, Supermoon is a great opportunity to see the natural beauty at its best. But for millions of others, it is a dreaded worst that brings good luck. Supermoon would appear on June 23, 2013, almost a month after the world witnessed it on May 24, 2013. According to astrologer Richard Nolle, who coined the term in 1979, a “supermoon” occurs when a new or full moon is at or near (within 90 percent of) its closest approach to Earth in a given orbit. This time the moon will not only be the closest to Earth for the year, but it will also appear the biggest full moon for 2013. It will also be about 30 percent brighter than an average full moon.  The moon came closest to the earth after 19 years in 2011.

There are many people who believe that the supermoon brings bad luck to them and also causes disasters. Even though the scientists for long now have denied any connection between the “supermoons” and that natural disasters and rather insisted that any calamity that has occurred around the time of a “supermoon” was just a coincidence, the astrologers have a different viewpoint altogether. According to some astrologers and conspiracy theorists, natural disasters including tsunamis, severe storms, extreme coastal tides, Earthquakes and volcanic eruptions are part of the list of possibilities due to Supermoon. Talking about the past calamities hat took place during the “supermoon”, Nolle said:  “In 2011, Supermoon was in effect from February 12-21 just before the earthquake that left Christchurch, New Zealand in ruins on Feb. 22, 2011. Other disasters occurring around the time of a Supermoon include: the hurricane and tidal surge that struck Texas in September 1900, the Hawke’s Bay Earthquake in February 1931, the New England hurricane in 1938, Cyclone Tracy in Australia in 1974, Mount Pinatubo eruption in June 1991, Hurricane Katrina in 2005 and the 2005 Tsunami in Indonesia. All these happened within days and at a maximum of two weeks of a Supermoon.” But last year, proved that there is actually nothing bad associated with it.
