Shine On Harvest Moon September 19 2013, 0 Comments

Tonight's Full Moon is my favorite full moon of the year. This year we enjoy the double pleasure of it occurring right near the Autumnal Equinox. While the sun sets due west, the moon rises in the East. 

The amazing design of a full moon experience is that it lights the evening sky all night long since it rises at sunset and sets around sunrise.  Generally, the moon rises about 50 minutes later each night after the full moon. As we head towards Winter in the Northern Hemisphere, the moon rises farther north on the eastern horizon.

Super Moon Lights Longest Night June 21 2013, 0 Comments

 This year spring and summer we have three Super Moons where the full moon coincides with the moon at Perigee. June's Full Moon is the most supercalifragilisticexpialidocious. Why? It's when the moon is closest to the earth in the Northern Hemisphere and it's so close to the summer solstice. Following the summer solstice, the full moon lands on Sunday, June 23rd.

The 23 June 2013 Supermoon

On the 23rd, the moon rises at around 9:30pm just after the sun sets in the Pacific Northwest and it sets just after sunrise. We'll be able to enjoy such well lit nights this weekend, I hope you'll stay up late and play in the moonshine.

Tonight's Full Moon is Super May 25 2013, 0 Comments

Today's Full Moon is a Super Moon. This is a recently coined term meaning the full moon is near or at Perigee, when the moon is closest to the Earth. Here's wishing you a wonderful Memorial Day Weekend with opportunities for no flashlight night walks and beautiful sails as the moon's reflection paints a path across the water.
