Earlier this week I talked about pausing the spin cycle of our life and reconnecting with our surroundings, and this weekend presents a great opportunity. From Saturday May 5th-Sunday May 6th, the night sky will offer both a super moon and the Eta Aquarid meteor shower. What a great excuse to break from our routine, make s'mores or hot chocolate, and dream a little.
While technically the moon will be at its closest point to earth at about 11:35 EDT, I think we’ll try to catch it as it rises. Who can resist the moon through the trees on the horizon? If you are in the U.S. and want to find out when the moon will rise in your area, visit http://www.usno.navy.mil/USNO/astronomical-applications/data-services/rs-one-year-us.
