The dedicated flight (BA9230c) took place yesterday (Saturday March 12), flying over the UK for two and a half hours, with comedians Dara O Briain, Jack Whitehall and Jon Richardson performing at 35,000 feet for 45 minutes.

There were a total of 180 guests and prize winners on board, and the gig has so far raised almost £100,000 for Red Nose Day.

Among the jokes were Whitehall’s quip: “I was looking forward to today - after all it’s the only gig where people can’t walk out. If you want to heckle you’ll have to press the call button.”

BA has raised a total of over £700,000 for Comic Relief since its partnership began in June 2010. This year’s Red Nose Day takes place on Friday March 18.

Coverage of the record-breaking gig will be posted at youtube.com/britishairways, and BA has also painted seevral of its aircraft with red noses to mark this year’s event.

2011 Super Moon - March 19th Closest Position in its Orbit to Earth

Super Moon 2011 - March 19th Closest Position in its Orbit to Earth

The astronomer Richard Nolle coined the term "Super Moon" which means a new or full moon at 90% or greater of its closest perigee to Earth. Well on March 19th the moon will be at perigee (its closest position in its orbit to Earth). This will be the closest perigee in 18 years.

The largest effect will be on the tide which occurs at the full moon every month as the closer to the earth the moon orbits, so the effect on tides increases. A 5% increase in proximity makes about 20% difference in the power the moon exerts so those in coastal regions should anticipate stronger tides.

An extreme "SuperMoon" is when the moon is full or new as well as at its 100% greater mean perigee (closest) distance to earth. By this definition, last month's full moon, this month's and next month's will all be extreme "SuperMoons".

Some largely internet-based claims say such events are related to catastrophies such as extreme siesmic events or extreme weather and some coincidential strong events have happened at the same time as Super Moons, however no definitive scientific research has concluded that.
