lunar eclipse

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 navigated the windy conditions this morning and talks spectacular sunsets, a lunar eclipse and the new finch who showed up at his feeder this week: the white-winged crossbill.
