SUPER MOON, JUNE 23


Pine Valley should be a perfect place to view the "super moon" which will occur on Sunday, June 23. Also called a "perigee full moon," it describes the moon’s closest approach to Earth for a particular month. The June super moon will be the moon’s closest encounter with Earth this year and will look even larger than it does in other months.
Some of the messages being circulated about this particular moon tend to exaggerate how big the moon will actually appear or to suggest that it will be bright purple or blue. It will be its normal moon color, but should be beautiful to view and photograph. Don't go to bed too early :)

  1. Last night it was so bright inside our house that the grandkids didn't even need a nightlight!
