Does This Mean Anything to Anyone?

9th grade earth science.

perigee- closest the moon comes to earth. The moon looks larger. Strongest gravatational pull. Extreme tides and unpredictable weather.

 

apogee- farthest from earth. Less pull closer to normal tides. Looks smaller.

I'm sorry I was not clear. I do understand what the terms mean and how they effect tides. I wanted to hear from others who target this Moon phase.

Thanks for the science lesson Demonfish,

 

I must have been absent that day in science class. Wish I had a better understanding of how the moon affects my fishing success.

 

The only thing know at this point, is I usually get skunked on a full moon. Dissappointing since being on the surf in a full moon is almost perfect.

 

Unfortunately, nobody told the fish to be there.

No no idiots, a Perigee is a dog food company.

 

and Apogee is the southern name for bunker.

 

I was looking at the budding fairer sex during ninth grade science anyway. Maybe later however we could talk about igneous rock.

That ain't nothing compared to the following two months at new moon....

But it gets even better in July
