High will give super view of “Supermoon”

This weekend’s “Supermoon” should be easy to view from anywhere in the country thanks to the big ridge of high pressure.

The high that has been keeping our weather dry, settled and a bit chilly should provide some clear to partly cloudy skies when the Supermoon rises late tomorrow afternoon.

The moon is expected to be at its fullest at 3:35pm tomorrow.  But the moon won’t be visible until moonrise at 5:23pm.

Do you plan on doing some moon viewing tomorrow?

The eta aquarid meteor shower peaks tomorrow morning also. Best time to view is from 5am. Peak could be 30-40 an hour. The moon sets at 5.40am so its brightness may limit the amount of meteors we see.

Yes, we’ll be out moonwatching, only problem is it’s brightness is no good for star watching.
We use to love the song “I see the moon” as children; and dad had a saying ‘ every moonlit night, a million moth’s fly to the moon…..”
