Super Moon of May 5, 2012 and March 19, 2011

I think I actually "read" the narration somewhere and (a few angry) comments on it a few days after the 3.11.

Embedded from SPACE.COM.
Super Moon Returns on May 2012 (May 5th 11:04pm EDT, 6th 12:04pm JST)

The full Moon will be up to 14% larger and 30% brighter than others during the year. The reason for this phenomenon is that the Moon becomes full on its closest approach to Earth on May 5, 2012, also known as the perigee full Moon.

[QUOTE - a few lines from the narration]
"Supposedly, the hospital misshions will increase, the crime rate takes up a little, and people behave strangely.

The idea that the full moon causes mental disorders wide-spread in the Middle Ages.  Even the word Lunacy comes from the word in Latin meaning Moon.  

The majority of modern studies, however, are showing no relations between the incidents of the moon and the crime rates or human behaviour.  The truth is, the moon is less influential than people seem to believe.  

It's true that Perigee Moon causes relatively high tides, but ... this is nothing to worry about.

In most places, the moon close to perigee causes high tides only a few centimeters.   super moon occurs almost once a year.  

On Mach 19, 2011, it was almost 400 metres closer than this one, but as usual no troubles reported."

No troubles reported???

Maybe there was nothing big enough right on 19th as we were only continuously shaking on the ground that kept trembling since the 3.11 earthquake and Tsunami.  As the moon was so close as the first time in 18 years, the influence to the gravity could have begun several days earlier.

I remember that toward late April, the floor of my flat kept moving.  It means March 19th is, in  a way, in the middle of the curve.
