Supermoon Rises Saturday night 6:14pm

Postby Shorty » Fri Mar 18, 2011 3:06 pm

Is staring at a bright moon bad for your eyes? I heard at 6:14pm Saturday evening here in WI, the moon will rise as full moon and be the closest it has been in many years. This link say "On Saturday afternoon at 3 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time, the moon will arrive at its closest point to the Earth in 2011" but when it rises (for us in WI) is apparently the 6:14 time. So if it's a clear evening point your camera East for some good photo opps:

Hopefully you got out there last night to take a look at it with a clear sky because tonight's forecast is cloudy with a chance of rain.

It'll probably still be good, but damn it was bright last night.

I think it's 7:34 pm tonight. Doesn't look too bad for cloud cover, but that's 90 min away, who knows...

Which is why we have hairy palm trees in Wisconsin.

Moonrise was at 7:34. Came home from a lovely afternoon on State St. and napped right through it, damn. I'm an 80s girl, so moon events always give me a nice Moonstruck vibe. Sorry I missed this one.
