Racing the Super-Moon’s Celestial Clock

Wednesday, June 26th, 2013

Pin It Picture: Super-Moon rising over Mount Diablo, as seen from Briones Regional Park, Contra Costa County, California This last weekend was the “Super-Moon Rise.” This is when the moon is supposed to be 10-13% larger in the sky because the moon’s orbit brings it closest to the earth. Normally I don’t go chasing after […]
