Jerry, oooh ya!!! What a neat accounting.  I love the internet, we are so privy to such wonderful things to understand and learn.  This will be an event.

I know for a fact that before and after the full mooon, we have clear skies, that is pretty much a given.  I can count on beautiful weather around the full moon, and I will be watching the night sky for sure on the 20th of February, that is not that far away.  In the wintertime (why do I say such dumb things that we all know) the moon is so much higher in the sky than like in the summertime when it is low on the southern horizon, I know that I will visibly see (or not see) the eclipse of the moon.  I have to find out exactly what time this is to occur, so I can ensure my eyes are there.  I look at Skywatch, it is a good site.  Beautiful and wonderful day, love our life we live, on our most greatest of places, Earth.  Cindi

I bring this back up just to remind you that this is happening again this evening. The moon part, not the Columbus part.
