Just wanted to give you a heads up for tomorrow night. Sunset at 8:02pm....Moonrise at 8:33pm...now's the time to hop on a night fishing boat to witness Mother Nature at her best Smile

For those in the western sound, try to book one of the local boats now as Playlands fireworks begin at 9:15. I'll be out with a midwest crew who have never fished the salt before and am excited knowing what's in store for them !!! Toungue I think the Island Current, The Shamrock, Mollyroze, and others I can't remember at the moment offer night trips...in a hurry now but I'll try to check back tonight if I remember more, but Google them now for a chance to book early... Thanks to Pursuitwa for the pic of June's moonrise up ...

Is this what you are referring to?

Earth is catching up with Mars in an encounter that
will culminate in the closest approach between the two planets in
recorded history. The next time Mars may come this close is
in 2287. Due to the way Jupiter's gravity tugs on
Mars and perturbs its orbit, astronomers can only be
certain that Mars has not come this close to Earth
in the Last 5,000 years, but it may be as long as
60,000 years before it happens again.

The encounter will culminate on August 27th when
Mars comes to within 34,649,589 miles of Earth and
will be (next to the moon) the brightest object in
the night sky. It will attain a magnitude of -2.9
and will appear 25.11 arc seconds wide. At a modest
75-power magnification
Mars will be easy to spot. At the
beginning of August it will rise in the east at 10p.m.
and reach its azimuth at about 3 a.m.

By the end of August when the two planets are
closest, Mars will rise at nightfall and reach its
highest point in the sky at 12:30a.m. That's pretty
convenient to see something that no human being has
seen in recorded history. So, mark your calendar at
the beginning of August to see Mars grow
progressively brighter and brighter throughout the
month.
Share this with your children and grandchildren.

NO ONE ALIVE TODAY WILL EVER SEE THIS AGAIN



Hey, it can't be Christmas everyday!!!!

Well, I was a little late but, I got in the truck to drive home from a meeting last night at 9:00pm. Of course no camera, but I got to tell ya, the moon took up my whole windshield. It was like a giant orange harvest moon. In no time at all it quickly changed to a brilliant white with full definition of it surface. Thanks for the heads up.up
