 This Saturday (May 5th), our familiar lunar companion will move in closer than she's been in twenty years, and will be in full phase, resulting in a "Supermoon" (or perigee-syzygy for you astronomy nerds). The perfect line-up will occur that night at 9:35pm, when the moon will appear larger than usual and cause many of us to transform into werewolves. Just kidding about that last part, although a supermoon is a suspect in the sinking of the Titanic, when unusually high tides may have dislodged the iceburg that struck the ship.
