FRIDAY THE 13TH FULL HARVEST MOON #GLOUCESTERMA #SCHOONER

Friday the 13th full moon through the masts of the Schooner Liberty Clipper

A flock of birds flew by…

and then a butterfly flew by (not really, but doesn’t this bird look like it could be a butterfly?).

#supermoon MARCH SUPER FULL WORM MOON DESCENDING WITH GLOUCESTER CITY HALL

The full Worm Moon descending aligned with City Hall this morning.

On my way to give a Monarch talk in Boston this morning I caught the full Worm Moon setting. It was gorgeous and the air was perfectly still, which would have been ideal for filming. I was trying to take some footage, but my tripod wasn’t cooperating. This was the last super moon of 2019 and is extra special because today’s full super moon also coincides with the vernal equinox (also my son’s birthday!). The last time this happened was in 1905, over one hundred years ago. The next time a super moon will be seen with the spring equinox is in the year 2044.

March’s full moon has many names including Crow Moon, Eagle Moon, Sugar Moon, Sap Moon, Crust Moon, and Lenten Moon. Don’t you prefer any of these other names over Worm Moon; I especially love Eagle Moon and Sugar Moon.

Crescent Wolf Moon Waning

On my way out to film Snowy Owls early this morning and a perfect crescent moon was overhead.
