The Moon March 19, 2011

Filed under: Uncategorized — Shanna @ 3:35 pm

“Here,” said Papa to Monica, “I have the moon for you.” (from Papa, Please Get the Moon for Me by Eric Carle)

I read an article this morning about how the moon tonight will be closer to the earth–and therefor bigger and brighter–than it has been in eighteen years, and than it will be for another eighteen years. The article explained that this is a result of the moons elliptical orbit, which brings it closer to Earth at some times than others. I don’t know about you, but I’ve got plans to take a peek at the sky tonight!
