Strawberry Moon Walk

June 20, 2016 , , ,

The phases of the moon influence tides and other liquid phenomena.  Farmers have traditionally used the moon phases to plan planting and harvest schedules.  The Farmer’s Almanac, formerly very widely used, is still published.  It still distributes information about the moon to all the gentle readers of the publication.  In 2016, the solstice falls on June 20 at 6:34 p.m. EDT. This is the “summer” solstice in the Northern Hemisphere.  For the first time in 70 years the solstice is coinciding with the full strawberry moon.

This year the Farmer’s Almanac is hosting a live stream of the full moon event on Monday evening 20 June.  Bob Berman will be looking through a giant telescope at the Moon, courtesy of Slooh, and streaming it live to any and all visitors here.  We have come a long way since Galileo took a walk on the wild side and had to face the Catholic church for his efforts.

Step outside to enjoy this special moon event, or watch it stream live on your computer. This is the right night to toast Galileo with a strawberry daiquiri. Cheers, gentle reader.
