The Northern Lights created a large wolf in the sky, previewing the Full Wolf Moon on Saturday:

the full moon is going to cause high tides during our storm this weekend, which will worsen coastal flooding.

to your benefit, as well as ours!  :)

Chuck, apparently I haven't been to the full moon thread in quite a while, and when I clicked just now, I came to this! Thank you!  :-*

Also, I'll be thinking of you, and all you East Coasterish people, this weekend. Blizzards suck, IMO.

A super moon occurs when a full moon or new moon is closest to Earth and comes within 224,834 miles of us, which will happen six times this year, according to earthsky.org.

I wonder what was up with last year. I don't think I'd ever heard of a super moon before a year or so ago. Then six in a year??

Maybe global warming is throwing off the whole solar system!  :o

I understand what you're saying. I always thought, before it happened, that "empty nest syndrome" was a made-up thing, but once it happened, I realized it is a Real Thing.  :-\

And again, sorry, but I wanted to catch up with this, too, even though it's non-lunar. Yes, it's definitely a real thing.

But I'll have to say I envy people like you whose kids are still close by, so you can see them anytime, as well as your grandchildren. Whereas I have one son 400 miles away (Chicago) and the other half a country away (formerly in NYC, now in LA). So I see them only in the summer and around the holidays (well, Jack visits a little more often because Chicago is closer).

Ironically, when they are here they mostly drive me crazy. They eat so much food, I'm constantly shopping or cooking or ordering pizza. I make some casserole kind of dish that if it were just me would last for two dinners and two lunches, and it's gone the next day. They leave clothes and dishes lying around. They stay up until 4 a.m. and sleep until 2 p.m.

With kids it's so often either not enough, or too much. Having them live in the same city but in different homes seems like the best of all worlds. But both of my kids swear they will not live in Minneapolis when they grow up.

I know, right?

Maybe they just used another term for it?  I certainly don't recall hearing it before.

hehehe...

Or maybe its that extra planet they think is part of our solar system. Its gravity could be altering the moon's orbit.

Tonight is supposed to be a pink full moon, but we've got heavy cloud cover right now, so no moon to see.

Are you ready for the full moon in June at the summer solstice? What's your go-to full moon song?

Isn't it exciting? A full moon at the summer solstice!  :D
