When the moon rises tonight at 6:39, it's already an astronomical event -- a supermoon. It'll be 20,000 miles closer, which will make it look almost 15 percent larger. Add in the lunar eclipse later on in the night (the schedule is here) and everyone is in an uproar.
Meanwhile, the beach this morning, mostly gray and almost still. It's afternoon now and remnants of the marine layer are hanging tough, obscuring the sky and horizon. So despite understanding that if this haze does burn off it's because temps east of here have spiked into the 90s, I can't help rooting for clear coastal skies. In the name of moon science.
