Previous Entry Share Flag Next Entry

don't forget, tonight the moon will be lower (at it's peak) than it has been in over ten years (almost twenty). This means that the "large moon" illusion will be somewhat longer in duration than it normally is. Further, it is a full moon. so the illusion will be thus pronounced. End result, there will be a nice huge moon on the horizon tonight around 8:50ish (for us sactown folk) that should sit there for a nice while.

No worries. Wasn't sure if this was some ultra-strange heavenly body weirdness a-gogo.

Also, Diplomacy. For August 6th.
