Cool Sky Stuff

From the time I left Rocky Neck until I reached Annisquam, there was alot of cool sky stuff going on – between the fog bank that rolled in and gave Smiths Cove a mystical appearance, and City Hall’s tower peak the appearance of being suspended in air, and then that amazing full super moon that I had forgotten all about until I rounded the bend near Wheeler’s Point and there it was.  Such  a diversity of magic in a ten minute span of time.  Only on Cape Ann.

Tonights Supermoon and Last Years “Rum” Moon

From EarthSky.org

“According to U.S. clocks, May 5, 2012 features the closest and largest full moon of this year.  Calendars say May 6, by the way, for this same close full moon as seen from Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Asia.  We astronomers call this sort of close full moon a perigee full moon.  The word perigee describes the moon’s closest point to Earth for a given month.  But last year, when the closest and largest full moon occurred on March 19, 2011, many used a term we’d never heard: supermoon.  We’ve heard this term again at this 2012 close full moon.  What does it mean exactly?  And how special is the May 5, 2012 supermoon?” CLICK HERE TO FIND OUT!

Below is a photo I took last Summer of the Full “RUM MOON”

 It’s something i’ll never forget. I almost retired after taking this shot.
