That Amazing Supermoon ... and Cyberspace
Close to you ...
During the 2012 May event, the moon was only 221,802 miles (356,955 kilometers) away from Earth. By May 19, scientists said the swing out to “apogee” would take it out its farthest point for the month – 252,555 miles (406,448 kilometers) away.
