The Super Moon August 29, 2015

Unwinding on one of our sunset cruises is a perfect end to a busy day.  As we return from the Gulf on a clear evening, the night sky dotted with stars is certainly a sight to behold.  A Full Moon on such a night is an added treat!

On Saturday, August 29 the Full Moon is referred to as a Super Moon.  If conditions allow, it will be visible in its location on the opposite side of the Earth as the Sun and its face will be fully illuminated.  Because the moon will be at its closest approach to the Earth, it will appear to be slightly larger and brighter than usual.  Make sure to step outside and take a look.
