Extreme Super Moon To Cause Major Earthquakes?

http://planetsave.com/2011/03/08/extrem ... rthquakes/
Coming up later this month (March 19 to be exact) the moon will make its closest approach to Earth (called lunar perigee) in 18 years. A new or full moon at 90% or greater of its closest perigee to Earth has been named a “SuperMoon” by astrologer Richard Nolle.

Hopefully not..

Last time in 1992 the only thing i remember happening is the LA Riots.....

If alot of earthquakes happen,HAARP will most likely be the reason.. (Many think they are responsible for the mass animal deaths,etc and im not sure they arent to be quite frank about it!)

Well...one of the largest earthquakes ever just struck Japan with tsunamis and devastation. Could it get worse on the 19th?

My opinion:
I consider the article to be nothing more than a sensationalist's blog. Rather like the spam e-mail about Mars appearing larger than the moon.

"A new or full moon at 90% or greater of its closest perigee to Earth .."

Verifiable facts :
The Moon orbits the Earth. It hits apogee ( far point of orbit 405,696 km) once a month and perigee ( near point of orbit 363,104 km) once a month ( 27.321 days) in EVERY lunar orbit. If perigee occurs during a full moon it's usually called a "Hunter's Moon" or "Harvest Moon" and it's somewhat bigger because it IS closer.
