Full Moon

Larry Weber shares weather almanac from the past month, nearly the warmest July on record and basically no rainfall as reported by the National Weather Service.  Monarchs, dragonflies and berries are all out while the songbirds have quieted down. The show-stealer today is the full moon, lunar eclipse and the close, viewable mars. Looking like mostly clear skies should allow for great sky watching this weekend.

Larry Weber says, once in a blue moon (like the one January 31), you should get out for a nice moonlight walk or ski or snowshoe tromp.

First, we've got a full moon August 7.  Then the Perseid meteor shower August 11-13.

Then the "eclipse of the century" on August 21, 2017.

No wonder Larry Weber thinks August is awesome!
