A quiet weekend, perfect for sky watchers

May 5th, 2012 at 6:56 pm by under Weather

For those of you that follow our weather blog, you probably saw my post from earlier in the week about the full moon tonight and the meteor shower.  For those of you that missed it… HERE is the link to that blog post and HERE is a link to a wane.com story.

The full moon tonight is called a supermoon due to it being full and at it’s closest point to Earth.  It will appear a bit bigger and brighter tonight.  Also happening tonight is the peak of the eta Aquarid meteor shower.  With clearer skies in the forecast it will be perfect viewing conditions.

    Somehow, it doesn’t boom so loudly if you gaze at the lonely moon on a quiet night such as this.
