Fpspace's David Harland seems to have had the misfortune to get his good name
and clever comment associated with an overall not-so-bright article in Daily
on the - presumably - exciting subject of supermoons:
To quote from the article:
... U.S. astrologer Richard Nolle [...] said [...] 'Supermoons have a
association with strong storms, very high tides, extreme tides and also
[...] 'Supermoons are like eclipses.'
The moon's orbit around Earth is not a circle, but an eclipse. At its closest
the perigee - the moon appears brighter and larger in the sky.
Dr David Harland, space historian and author, said: 'It's possible that the
be a kilometre or two closer to Earth than normal at a perigee, but it's an
insignificant event. '
