Supermoon 2016

This year the full moons of October, November and December all take place when the moon is at it’s closest to the Earth in it’s orbit. We call this a supermoon.

However, this year the supermoon is at it’s closest point to the Earth than it has been since 1948! This also means that instead of the average of four to six regular supermoons a year (In which the moon appears at it’s largest and brightest when it is a full moon) there will be no supermoons in 2017.

The moon will not come this close to Earth again until 2034 making it a sight not to be missed. The moon will appear 14% larger and 30% brighter than average and will disrupt the Earths oceans causing tides to rise higher than normal.

The supermoon will be visible on the 13th and 14th of November because the moon will be on the perigee side of it’s elliptical orbit (the closest sides to Earth) rather than the apogee (the furthest side from the Earth.

Jessica Bradley, 18 “I’d never heard of a supermoon before but now that it’s becoming a popular topic I had noticed tonight (November 13th) it does look brighter and bigger than usual.”

Liam Flaherty, 18 “It was quite cloudy tonight so I couldn’t really see much but I did notice the moon looks brighter than usual so I’m hoping to be able to see it tonight.”

Make sure on the night to go somewhere with few clouds and is very dark so the moon is visible.



Suicide Squad: The Extended Cut

Although with the long anticipated wait for the Suicide Squad film to be released finally and the large profit the movie claimed. There was still negative reviews on the film from people unsatisfied regarding large plot holes and a lack of Joker scenes despite being included in the trailer.

However, fans can put on their ‘Daddy’s Little  Monster’ T-shirts and ‘Damaged’ temporary tattoos once again because the studio is releasing a brand new trailer to the extended cut of Suicide Squad which promises thirteen minutes of extra footage which – as to fans delight – includes more Joker and Harley Quinn scenes adding depth to their flat on-screen relationship.

Jessica Bradley, 18 said “Because of the hype surrounding the new release of the extended cut I am more likely to watch this as I did not see the first official release of the movie.”

Many fans were left disappointed when it was revealed that Jared Leto (Who played The Joker) was left annoyed when the first final cut of the film only included less than ten minutes of on-screen Joker time. Furthermore, many important clips which included the structure and portrayal of the true Joker and Harley Quinn relationship which will paint the relationship in a more true-to-character light with themes of their abusive relationship being included.

Liam Flaherty, 18 stated “It definitely excites me. I’m hoping that we’ll see the film for what it was truly meant to be before everything was cut down. I’m also looking forward to seeing more of Jared Leto’s Joker who didn’t really get a chance to see much due to the movies running time.”


The Star – Article Piece: The Rise Of The Youtubers (In Progress)

Youtubers are taking over the world.

More and more teens are favouring an evening of Youtube videos over a night of soap operas making the community of Youtube sensations rise in popularity and quantity.

Because of the rapidly growing number of subscribers, views, shares and promotions a Youtuber is getting per video, many often get the chance to work on secret projects resulting in a utopia filled with books, merchandise, cosmetics and fashion lines.

A lot of it is quite overwhelming. Popular beauty guru, Zoella states: “Over the past few years, my life seems to have taken a complete 180. Did I set out for it to become that way? Of course not. Did I ever expect it? Hell no. Did I ever plan on making a living from it? Nope.”

Many other popular Youtubers such as Lily Singh and Tanya Burr are bringing out their own personalised goodies for their fans to love while taking over Waterstones with books and stationary and highstreet drugstores with make up and bath products.

The number of channels earning six figures each year on YouTube has increased by 50% and is still growing in numbers making what seems to be a common hobby into a full-time job for many Youtubers.

Youtube lover Jess Bradley states: “Although they’re just people, I feel happy that there are more things to buy from the Youtubers I enjoy watching.” and Youtube fanatic Abbie Akers includes: “I think it’s good that Youtubers get to express their creativity in different ways and share it.”
