Supermoon Saturday: Why it's the biggest, brightest of 2012

Supermoon Saturday: It's also called the 'Flower Moon,' and 'Milk Moon.' The 'supermoon' will be only 221,802 miles from Earth, the closest to our planet this year.

In contrast, later this year, on Nov. 28, the full moon will closely coincide with apogee, the moon's farthest point from Earth.

And should I feel insulted that the moon will reach its apogee on my birthday? Neutral

@Lustig Andrei,
That was the sky, I believe.

However, as, to fall, the sky would have to hit the moon in its fall, I believe that,were Chicken Little's fear to become reality it would, indeed, necessarily also encompass the falling of said moon.
