The moon is an average of 235,000 miles away from the Earth. All orbits are shaped like ovals, which means that sometimes the moon is closer (as close as 221,681 miles) or further away (as far as 252,622 miles). When you hear people talk about a "supermoon", they mean that the moon is at its closest point in its orbit. How much bigger is a supermoon? Well, sorry to disappoint, but a supermoon is only about 7% larger than a normal moon. You might not even notice.
The Moon Men know how to make the moon a lot bigger than that. Our telescope can magnify the the sky up to 120X! Up this close, you will notice that the moon drifts out of the telescope's view very quickly! That's because the Earth is spinning. When this happens, it feels as if you are flying above the mountains on the moon, gently gliding as if you are in an airplane... The picture below is representative of what we can actually show you!
So when the Moon Men stop people on the street, sometimes they will tell us "I can already see the moon from here." I can understand why, from South Street, the moon might not look that interesting. Like all things in nature, we're just trying to show what you can see when you look a little closer.
