A Rare "Supermoon" Will Be Visible Across Canada Tomorrow
A celestial event not to be missed.
Well Canada, we did it. We finally made it to the end of winter 2019. Today is the final day before the start of spring, although perhaps someone should go warn Mother Nature because it certainly doesn’t feel like spring right now in most parts of the country.
Luckily for us even though the warm weather might not arrive by tomorrow, we do have a little treat in store to help us celebrate the end of winter.
On Wednesday night the northern hemisphere will be treated to a pretty spectacular show and you won't be able to see it again until 2020.
It is the very last supermoon of 2019.
According to Accuweather, "The Vernal Equinox occurs at 5:58 p.m. EDT on March 20 (...) The moon becomes full only a few hours later at 9:43 p.m. EDT."
This is set to happen only hours after the change in season, which are a rare occurrence. The last time it happened was nearly 20 years ago in March 2000.
As we all know, asupermoon in Canada can only mean one thing: Canadian Werewolves.
Okay so that might not be true, but studies have shown that full moons in general actually do cause unusual changes in human behaviour. Scientists even refer to it as Lunar Lunacy.
Lunar lunacy actually influences crime rates, birth rates, mental health, and even the stock market. And the effect is believed to be even stronger during a "super full moon" which is what we'll be seeing on Wednesday night.
