A full Flower Moon and a picture perfect weekend

What’s all that about? Well, as high pressure chugs southeastward towards us from central Canada, our weather will turn slightly cooler, much less humid, and much brighter (by day), clearer (at night). So, the weekend looks great, with the next chance for foul weather coming Monday night.

Having said this, there is a full moon Saturday night. It is called the Flower Moon, and is a little special in this case, because it will make it’s closest pass this year, in it’s orbit. So, it will appear as large as it can. I found a really interesting article on the moon today. It has to do with why the moon appears much larger when near the horizon, versus overhead. It is an optical illusion…that’s all I’ll say…I’ll let you read about it via this link 🙂
