Lunar Eclipse, Full Moon alert, an anniversary and countdown!


Remington, 
your Full Moon and Sky Watching specialist,
reporting from the 
RRC.
(Remington Research Center)

Lots going on today!
Keep your eyes to the sky!

This morning if you are in the right
part of the world you will enjoy a
lunar eclipse!
What is that you ask?

From studying this I have found....
   

A lunar eclipse takes place when the moon, following its orbit around us, passes directly behind Earth as seen from the sun.  For people in the western United States the eclipse is deepest just before local dawn. Face west to see the red Moon sinking into the horizon as the sun rises behind your back.  It’s a rare way to begin the day.

AND 
tonight
 the Full Cold Moon....
 
My extensive research on this moon is....
 December is the month the winter cold fastens its grip.  Sometimes this moon is referred to as the Full Long Nights Moon and the term "Long Night" Moon is a very appropriate name because the nights are now indeed long and the Moon is above the horizon a long time.  This particular full moon makes its highest arc across the sky because it's diametrically opposite to the low Sun.       

I certainly hope Mr. Mike, 
our Full Moon photographer,
will be able to get a good shot tonight.

Be sure to go outside about 9:57 pm
tonight....listen closely....
that will be me howling at you....

AND


To Mike and Beth!


Why the skunks, you ask....
anyone who knows Mike knows
he LOVES skunks!
So I thought it would be appropriate!

Happy Anniversary to 
my two best friends!

Later -- Remington --
what a great day!
-- out!

The Official Newfie
Countdown
until Christmas Eve....
days to go!

Happy Anniversary to your people! I have skunk joke...Why did the chicken cross the road? To show the skunks it COULD be done! Bad one, I know, but I live by a skunk crossing and they need a few more lessons. Happy weekend!♥♫

Sandra said...

Rem, tell the Beth and Mike Happy anniversary and many many more. i will be sleeping when that moon is doing it's thing so i hope Mike gets a shot of it. and the name long moon is more appropriate for us here in Florida because Cold moon does not fit. winter does not have us in its grip. great info, keep it coming

Happy Anniversary, Beth & Mike!!
Have fun celebrating the event!

Wish we could see the Lunar Eclipse on our side of the earth!
Last great one was in 2007 to be seen in the west, lasted a long time in the wee hours of course!

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!!!!! Woooooo, Beth and Mike!!! I like the color combo skunks have going on!
We saw the eclipse! It was cool! Actually... cold. But we didn't get any pictures because of a camera malfunction. Ooops. We'll try to remember to send Mom out to get full moon pix tonight!
Hope to hear you howling!
Luv,
Dave

Happy Anniversary.

Cinnamon loves to visit Remington's blog and learn so much. It was way to cold here to see the moon last night.

Happy Anniversary Mike and Beth! What a beautiful picture of the both of you.

Elyse and Riley said...

What a great picture of Mike and Beth!! You have a good looking set of best friends!

Now...what is this about a Full Moon? Is that why Psycho Riley has been acting a little...well...psycho today? Oh great, can't WAIT til tonight then...sigh! :) Or maybe it doesn't have so much to do with the full moon but with the fact that she's been crated nearly 24/7 for the last 52 days??? Yeah, that's probably it!

Enjoy the weather and thanks for the Official Newfie Christmas Eve Countdown! I better get to wrapping those presents I bought!

Ginny said...

Happy, Happy anniversary, Mike and Beth, this is such a good picture of you!!! If it is icy and cold enough, maybe I can hear you howl at 10:00!!! I hope you can get a picture! Since we live in the south, I guess we will not see the eclipse.
