NASA Explains The Supermoon Lunar Eclipse

You have no doubt heard about the rare supermoon lunar eclipse that took place last night. Not only was the moon the closest it ever is to Earth resulting in it looking 14% larger to us, but it was also completely blocked by our planet causing it to have a strong red tint. That’s called a supermoon lunar eclipse. The last time this happened was 1982. Did you see it for yourself?

The Moon Seen Through A Super Zoomed In Camera Shows Stunning Detail

These days, most cameras have two types of zoom. Digital zoom, which rarely works well, and the much more optimal optical zoom, which physically zooms in using the lens of the camera. German nature lover Naturbeobachtungen von Lothar Lenz has a Nikon Coolpix P900 with a monstrous 83x optical zoom capability. When handled correctly, he was able to show the moon actually moving from earth. This video has gone viral with over 1.5 million hits!

How Big Is The Moon Really

The moon seems small when looked up at in the night sky. But it’s really not small at all! So how big is our moon really? As educational group Kurzgesagt explains, our moon is actually the biggest in the solar system in relation to its planet and is much larger than Pluto. It may surprise you to learn that China, the US, Brazil, and Europe could all fit on the moon with a little room to spare. 


Thanks Philipp!

Computer animation studio Cinesite has gone viral with this humorous mock commercial for beans. 

A crew of astronauts on the moon are attacked by a giant monster reminiscent of the great Rancor from Return of the Jedi. After the attack, it seems one astronaut may have successfully escaped, but a common reaction from eating beans gives him away.
