    I guess I just don't understand all this hype about 'super' moons. I mean, look at the math. It's about the same as looking at a tennis ball at 24 feet during 'normal' times, but suddenly everyone gets all giddy about stepping a foot and a half closer to it.
    Don't mind me... I'm out roaming around somewhere between Zone III and VII.

    Ya, but tennis balls don't control the tide and affect literally everything growing on Earth. It's not asking for a cape or even its own theme song, just let it be super once in a while

    So would the super moon possibly cause a higher tide than normal? At the park I noticed the water in the cove was much higher than normal - kind of encroaching on a memorial bench.

    For some people it means not having to crop quite so much if they don't have a long telephoto lens. Besides, it might get a few people out to photograph it when they normally wouldn't so there are definitely benefits for some.

    Short answer is yes! We have beach and road flooding in some locations at these times usually referred to as king tides in the media.

    "The greatest difference between high and low tides is around Full Moon and New Moon. During these Moon phases, the gravitational forces of the Moon and the Sun combine to pull the oceanís water in the same direction. These tides are known as spring tides or king tides."

    As Jeff states above, yes! We shouldn't complain about high tides because without the Moon, our Earth would spin much faster and the days and nights would be much shorter. Our Years would be longer and who knows, some of those large craters on the moon might have been on our houses if the Moon wasn't there to take the hits .
    So next time you look up, be thankful for the Moon and those high tides.

    I have no complaints about the moon - my complaint is more towards the township for not letting the bench owners know the possibility of the water rising too high. The winter before last, the same thing happened. Several benches wound up partially submerged, and since those had wooden slats, the benches had to be repaired. But the township didn't even attempt to move the benches until spring. With the new resins benches, they are now cemented into the ground so no way to move them back now. And then no one can even sit on them once the water reaches the bench supports.

    One thing I enjoy about the tide coming in is the water lapping along the edges of the banks. Makes some nice photo opportunities.

    Of what interest in higher tides be to the average photographer?
