White Sands, NM would be the place to see that moon!
As St Patrick,s Day, a weekend event here in Dublin coincides, I,ll let you know, assuming I come back down.
Safe sailing

We're scheduled to haul out next week, so I'm really rooting that everyone in PNW gets a TERRIFIC view!

Sounds great! I'm looking forward to experiencing this. I got up at an early hour in December for the lunar eclipse, and it was great, too. (Of course, I also got up to see Halley's Comet in '86, so I must be into this stuff.)

Maybe now those lunar panels I bought from that fast talking salesman will work.

Courtecy: digitaljournal.com Ships run aground off UK coast as supermoon blamed for low tides

A cargo ship is one of five vessels to have run aground in sandbanks off the Isle of Wight in the south coast of England on Sunday. It would appear the moon's close proximity to earth over the weekend is directly to blame.

The Maritime and Coastguard Agency confirmed that a large tidal range caused by the close proximity of the moon could well have been a factor in the vessels grounding. The Paula-C, a 295ft-long cargo vessel, became grounded in sandbanks near the Needles on Sunday, during the lowest tide seen in years. The crew had to pump out water from its ballast to make the vessel lighter and wait until high tide set them free. No one was injured.

We had a crystal clear night and it was impressive! Always neat to check out a full moon with binoculars - this one was clear and bright indeed.

If you make a point of keeping an eye on the sky at full moon time, you will find that 99% of full moon nights have a crystal clear sky.

There are people that believe (and I have found it hard to dispute) that there is enough moisture in the atmosphere for it to be considered tidal.

I have been watching the full moon phenomenon for some time now and it is almost uncanny how even heavily clouded skies clear when the moon is full.
