    If you tend to like to see neat things then this weekend there might be something that interests you. A "Supermoon"!!! The moon will be full about the time it rises Saturday night/Sunday morning (here in the USA). It will also be the closest to the earth that it will be this year. This creates a very neat view of the moon where it appears giant. I've seen a couple of them...they're really neat! Here's a link to an article about it.... Ed

    Oh well, they're predicting "mostly cloudy" for Saturday night going to 30% chance of rain for Sunday....kind of "iffy" whether we'll have good viewing down here. :| Somebody take a picture for me! :grin:
