Vamos começar então!
People in Australia saw the supermoon. The supermoon was closer to earth so it was bigger and brighter than normal. People can see it every year.
The supermoon is a name for the moon for people. NASA invented it. They wanted something interesting for people. But the right name is the "perigee moon".
People say the bad things happen when there's the supermoon. These things are things like the moving of the ground. But scientists say that it's not true.
Interesting words: bright (it sends a lot of light), invent (make something new), scientist (clever person who is an expert in something).
Cameras captured the supermoon in Australia. The supermoon was bigger and brighter than the normal moon because it was closer to the earth. You can watch the supermoon annually.
The supermoon is not a scientific term. It was invented by NASA for people to make astronomy more popular. The right name for the supermoon is "the perigee moon".
It is documented that when there's a supermoon, earthquakes and volcanic eruptions occur more often. However, scientists say it is not true.
Interesting words: annually (every year), scientific (used in science), eruption (when volcano explodes).
Time-lapse cameras show a so-called supermoon rising into the sky in Australia. The once-a-year event occurs when the moon appears bigger and brighter than normal because its at its closest point to the earth. Dr Tanya Hill from the Melbourne Planetarium says the term "supermoon" was actually invented quite recently by NASA to try get more people interested in astronomy.
"The supermoon should really be called a perigee moon which is when the full moon occurs at perigee which is when the moon is closest to us on its orbit around the earth."
Any connection between a full moon and an increased risk of events, such as earthquakes and volcanos, is well documented but dismissed by many scientists. The supermoon occurs when the full moon passes earth around 15,500 miles closer than normal. The next one won't happen until August next year.
Interesting words: time-lapse cameras (cameras which take many pictures for a long time), perigee (close point of the moon to the earth), orbit (way of moon and satellites around the earth).
