Thou­sand take in Moon

Pilbara News - - News - Tom Zaun­mayr

About 1000 peo­ple de­scended on Hear­son Cove over two nights last week to catch a glimpse of the su­per­moon.

While the clouds some­what over­shad­owed the spec­ta­cle those pa­tient enough got what they came for, with the big­gest moon in al­most 70 years shin­ing bright over the mud­flats when it cleared the cloud cover over­head.

St Paul’s Pri­mary School sci­ence teacher Ja­cob Win­dle took his tele­scopes to Hear­son Cove on the Mon­day night and was kept busy, with more than 100 chil­dren and adults lin­ing up to get a close up look at the spec­ta­cle.

The moon will not ap­pear this big again un­til 2034.
