Supermoon This Weekend  

Posted in

Could this coming weekend get any more awesome? The weather forecast is amazing, the Beltane Fairie Festival is going on at Spoutwood Farm, AND...the full moon will be the biggest full moon of the year!

The last supermoon occurred in March 2011. This weekend, it will occur on Saturday (May 5) at 11:35 p.m. EDT. This one is apparently going to be so bright that it may outshine the meteor shower due also this weekend.

"It's light will wash out the fainter Eta Aquarid meteors," NASA meteor expert Bill Cooke of the Marshall Space Flight Center told in an email. Still, Cooke said there's a chance that the brightest fireballs from the meteor display may still be visible.

If you get photos, I would LOVE to see them!

I found your blog via the Pagan Blogger's Network.

I almost forgot about the super moon, until I saw it rising over the river! The moonrise and sunset directly across from each other were equally bright. Magnificent! :-)
