Look for Hunter Moon this weekend

Written by
The weather has been so beautiful this week with sunshine in the day time and clear skies at night. This weekend look for the   Big Orange Hunter's Moon...It is the first full moon following the autumnal equinox and the Harvest Moon. Saturday weather is calling for rain, however, Friday night and Sunday should provide for a good view.  One of my favorite things to do is look up at the night sky.  Enjoy !
