Perigee Moon


Supermoon 2013 Peaks This Weekend: Don't Miss It


I was locking up last night when Elke, my German Shepherd, gave me a baleful stare which usually means she wants to go out. So, she and I went outside and it was very quiet and peaceful. I noticed how beautifully bright the moon was.

Turns out the full moon on June 23rd will be the largest full moon of the year, as well as the closest the moon will come to our planet in all of 2013.

So, grab your honey, and get out there and catch nature's beauty.

Cube - Thanks for the tip. I always saw the full moom when we had our dog - since I would be taking her out. I love the full moon and also the crescent.

I'll try to check it out - with or without my honey. : ]

I hope that the skies are clear here in the D.C. area. Right now, weather forecasters -- for what they're worth -- say that the skies will be clear this weekend. **smile**

AOW: I hope your skies are clear because the moon is magnificent.

"grab your honey"...I wish :-)

Thanks for the tip; I'll take a look.

Cube,
The moon was beautiful last night too!

Going to the drive in tonight despite the heat... and clear skies are in the forecast. We should get a very good look at the moon.

I am so excited about this!

I wonder if that is why Roxie has been so weird about being out at night of late.

Brooke,
All the drive-ins here are long gone. **sigh**

I envy your being able to go to the drive-in.

Z: There's always time to grab a new one.

AOW: It was beautiful, but it got even better Saturday night.

Yup, but it's the same one ... a lot of people don't know that.

Cube - It depends on who your honey is.

Thanks for the reminder. I'm famous for reading about a heavenly event after it's all over.

cube said...

Woodsterman (Odie): I guess a lot of people are idiots.

Sue Hanes: No, you were right the first time.

thepoodleanddogblog: Luckily planetoids like the moon revolve and you can catch the perigee next year. I'll make sure and warn you in time.
