The Supermoon Will Light Our Sky On April 26
The super moon is actually called the super pink moon, the reason it is called pink is that it is the first full moon of the spring season in the northern hemisphere and is inspired by the phlox subulata flower in Canada and the USA. The pink supermoon of 2021 will take place on Monday, April 26 at 23:33, don’t worry about missing it, the extraordinary pleasure of watching will continue all night.
In order for the super moon to occur, there must be a full moon and the moon must be in the closest position to the world. The word super moon was first used by astrologer Richard Nolle in 1970. Although it is not a scientific phenomenon, it became an expression loved by the public. We have 4 super moons ahead of us: March, April, May, and June
According to Studies, Nature Sounds Heal Pain
Some of us return to nature when we want to relax, or increase our mood by listening to nature sounds online. Scientists who want to investigate this effect have scientifically proved that it is possible to relax with nature sounds. Rachel Buxton and his colleagues from the department of biology at Carleton University in Ottawa, Canada studied the natural sound’s effects.
They shared their findings in Proceeding in National Academy of Sciences. The sounds including birds chirping and rivers running can heal both our body and mind. Also, the most remarkable effects are on lowering stress and feelings of annoyance. In addition, researchers have bad news because the more people go to parks, the more human sounds like horns increases, and this decreases the benefits.
