‘thunder-flower m00n’…the July full moon in the clouds over Fairhaven last Saturday. Thanks for floatin’ by…again! bb >*<
‘fu|| * mOOn‘ ..well, almost.. these were taken the evening after the moon peaked at full on the 6th, but it’s barely discernible. The large circle/halo around the moon can sometimes mean heavy duty weather on the way..so I am told, & there’s a few faint stars in that one..thanks for stoppin’ in to check out our cOOl mOOn! bb >*<
Full Moon News for June 2013
On June 22nd – 23rd we will have a super ‘Super Moon’ full moon due to the orbital perigee of the moon to the earth…in other words, it will be closer to us than normal which makes for a spectacular sight. The moon will appear 30% brighter and 13% larger to us than other full moons. The super moons are also known as a ‘Perigee Moon’.
Even though we have super moons approximately every 14 months, this one is just a bit closer to us than in previous years and looking into the future, the super full moon will be closer to us on November 25, 2034 and even a bit closer on December 6, 2052.
now..sharing some cool clouds… & thanks for stopping by ‘Bellingham Blog’ a<|>w* :)
