The devastating earthquake of 8.9-magnitude that hit Japan, could be caused
by the supermoon believe some people. The supermoon phenomenon is expected to
occur on 19th March when the moon would be at its closet to the
Earth in the past 18years.
However, some senior meteorologists and astronomers said that there is no
connection between the earthquake and the moon's position since the full moon
day is still 8-days away and the gravitational pull of the satellite is not so
strong enough to cause major disasters.
But some 'new age' forecasts state that the supermoon brings strong
earthquakes, storms or unusual climate patterns.
