Do they not know that the Moon is orbiting much closer to Earth than normal, giving photographers an excellent opportunity to get close-up pictures of our nearest neighbour?
I looked at it at 3am today ( March 24), and it certainly seemed huge, and perfectly clear (ideal for photographers).
Since the Moon generates our tides, I checked the Visitor Tide & Weather statistics, to see what effects the closer Moon had on tidal heights.
I’m afraid that I’m not sure what I was reading, and am seriously wondering whether they are tidal measures or sand measures!
It says that tidal predictions are supplied by a certain laboratory, but who verifies them by actually reading the well-known signs in Morecambe?
As for measurements, are they in feet, yards or millepedes?
Perhaps they are of sand heights - there is now much more sand in Morecambe Bay than water - thanks to the senseless 1970 changes to boundaries.
These changes are bringing a slow destruction of the once-unique Morecambe Bay.
Anyway, where are those missing pictures?
