March 19, 2011 – Super Moon

It’s almost time for the super moon. The media hype has been, well, a little silly. But that is the nature of much media hype. They call every rainy day in California a “storm” nowadays. In New England when a normal foot of winter snow falls in Boston, the local news all but declares end times. This week it’s super moon. And considering some of the awful stuff happening in the world, let’s enjoy the distraction of the super moon and bask in the glow beaming down from the Mare Tranquillitatis.

I saw the moon last night when the sky had a chance to clear. Yes, it was big and bright. This evening it’s cold and wet. The heat is cranking and I am staying in. But I know you’re up there, Super Moon, hiding behind the clouds.
