We astronomers call this sort of close full moon a perigee full moon. The word perigee describes the moon’s closest point to Earth for a given month.
Two years ago, when the closest and largest full moon fell on March 19, 2011, many used a term we’d never heard before: supermoon.
Last year, we heard this term again to describe the year’s closest full moon on May 6, 2012. Now the term supermoon is being used a lot. Last month’s full moon – May 24-25, 2013 – was also a supermoon.
But the June full moon is even more super! In other words, the time of full moon falls even closer to the time of perigee, the moon’s closest point to Earth.
The crest of the moon’s full phase in June 2013, and perigee, fall within an hour of each other.

So I watched "After Earth" movie which starred one of my favorite Hollywood actors Will Smith and his (not so good of an actor) and despite critics popping all over it the turned out to be decent, predictable, and more dramatic than action-oriented.
For those of you who did give the movie a chance this weekend what did you think?

Doha, 13 June 2013: The talented Ikebana artist, “Tenkei Nomura”, showcased his magnificent work at the Lagoona Mall Plaza Hollandi. The simple, well-designed flower vases that were assembled at the beginning of the event were an eye-catching piece of art as a result.
HE Mr. Kenjiro Monji explained his astonishment of the artist’s ability to arrange the flowers while standing behind the vases and not in front of them, which emphasizes Nomura’s skills even more. To this, Nomura clarified that he has been practicing Ikabana art for years, and that such a skill requires effort and patience.
Mr. Bader Abdullah Al-Darwish, Chairman of Darwish Holding, spoke of his delight to welcome this talented artist to Doha and shed light onto a traditional form of art in Japan, Ikebana.

With an olive green head scarf poking out from her helmet, Ayesha Farooq flashes a cheeky grin when asked if it is lonely being the only war-ready female fighter pilot in the Islamic republic of Pakistan.
Farooq, from Punjab province's historic city of Bahawalpur, is one of 19 women who have become pilots in the Pakistan Air Force over the last decade - there are five other female fighter pilots, but they have yet to take the final tests to qualify for combat.
