Greetings fellow Earthlings. This is The Daily Bone and I'm your scientific doggie reporter
Chester L. W. Spaniel.
Today I'm putting on my science geek hat in order to tell you about an important astronomical phenomenon that will occur Sunday night, December 3, 2017. If we don't get thick cloud cover, we will be able to witness a Super Moon! As some of you fellow science fans out there will know, our moon orbits the Earth in an elliptical path. This means sometimes it's closer to Earth and sometimes it's farther away. When it's closer to the Earth, it's called perigee. When it's farther from Earth it's called apogee. If the moon is full during perigee, it will look slightly bigger than usual. This is called a Super Moon. If you wish to learn more about this phenomenon, please check out the link at the end of this report.
My ghostwriter loves to take pictures of the moon even though she doesn't have any special cameras or equipment. If you try to take a picture of the moon in a perfectly clear dark sky, using your standard i-phone camera, all you'll get is a little bright spot. But when there are clouds and trees and jet vapor trails, the pictures actually come out more interesting.
I hope my dearest Princess Leah will be watching too.
In honor of the Super Moon we have put together a play list to enjoy while you see it Sunday night.
Are we done?
I actually like those 2 Cello guys better when they do crazy stuff …
