Earth at Perihelion-Moon at Apogee, January 2nd

Earth at Perihelion-Moon at Apogee

Although it might not seem like it, because it is winter, and pretty darn cold outside, the earth will be at its closest point to the sun at about sunset this evening. Then in the morning the moon will be the farthest that it can be from the earth.

If you live near the coast than this information can be important because the position of the earth in its orbit of the sun and moon's position in its orbit of the earth both affect the level of tides. Check out this page to read about how the perihelion affected the Boston Tea Party. It's really interesting.

Well, at least I thought it was interesting.

Yes. But, for next year, according to Dictionary.com it's per-uh-hee-lee-uhn and ap-uh-jee.

Oh, yes: ap-uh-jee. Suddenly, when I see it spelled that way (presumably for the first time), I remember that I know that word.
