Moon phases

Since my youngest son is tracking the moon phases this month, I thought I would post a couple of articles about the earth’s moon. Both articles can be found over at Earthsky, my go to place for information about our day and night time skies.

This first article,entitled “When is the Next Supermoon“? and written by Bruce McClure & Deborah Byrd, discusses the number of supermoons for 2015. These are times when the moon is either new or full and at it’s closets point to earth in it’s orbit. According the authors, there will be six in all.

The second article is entitled “Waxing Gibbous Moon at Perigee on Night of Novermber 2-3“, also by Bruce McClure. Waxing, Waning, New, Full… It’ s all good.
