I do not know what I may appear to the world, but to myself I seem to have been only like a boy playing on the sea-shore, and diverting myself in now and then finding a smoother pebble or a prettier shell than ordinary, whilst the great ocean of truth lay all undiscovered before me...Nu ştiu cum mă văd alţii, dar eu mă văd ca un băieţel care se joacă pe o plajă cu nisip şi uneori găseşte o pietricică mai frumoasă în timp ce oceanul adevărului se întinde nemărginit şi nedescoperit în faţa mea/lui...Din "Memorii", sir ISAAC NEWTON.



Luna la apogeu. Harvest MOON

Cea mai ”mică” Lună din an. Așa pare, pentru că e cel mai departe de noi. Luna se mișcă pe un cerc alungit în jurul Pământului, o elipsă.

Apogee and Perigee of the Moon

Apogee and perigee refer to the distance from the Earth to the moon. Apogee is the farthest point from the earth. Perigee is the closest point to the earth and it is in this stage that the moon appears larger. Looking at the moon in the sky without anything to compare it to, you wouldn't notice any size difference. But the difference in size can in fact be quite significant. If you were to photograph a full moon at apogee and perigee (using the same lens), here's how the two sizes would compare:
full moon at apogee and perigee
Astronomers have formulas for computing the exact distance at any point in time, but the average distance from Earth is 237,700 miles (382,500 km).
Effects of Apogee and Perigee
The apogee and perigee of the moon have an effect on the tides here on Earth. When the moon is at apogee, the furthest distance from the Earth, it has less gravitational pull which, along with other factors that influence the tides, can contribute to lower tides or lower variation in the high/low tide level. When the moon is at perigee, closer to the Earth, there is much more gravitational pull which contributes to the opposite effect: higher tides or greater variation in the high and low tide.
