Super Moon

The Night Before the SUPER Moon

It's the last day of winter.  Temps in the 50's.  We've got a full moon tonight, and it's super close to Earth.  The news media's calling it the "SUPER MOON!"  For the technical explanation, click here

But it's not SUPER here along the Lower Chippewa River in Wisconsin.   Our view of the moon is obscured by clouds tonight - and rain is in the forecast.  

Most of this winter's snow is gone now.  But... Sven Sungaard (our tv weather reporter) says snow will be back in the forecast next week.  (The groundhog was right).

I went out last night to take a photo of the moon - the day before it became totally SUPER.  It really was brighter and bigger than the "normal" full moon - which is great for songbirds who migrate at night.  

Go outside and watch - and listen to them this spring!
