Tour Scotland Video Supermoon Above Perth Perthshire
Tour Scotland video of the supermoon on November 14, 2016 above Perth, Perthshire, Scotland. A supermoon is the coincidence of a full moon or a New moon with the closest approach the Moon makes to the Earth on its elliptical orbit, resulting in the largest apparent size of the lunar disk as seen from Earth. The association of the Moon with both oceanic and crustal tides has led to claims that the supermoon phenomenon may be associated with increased risk of events such as earthquakes and volcanic eruptions, but this effect is very slight.
