This Saturday, March 19 will be a night to look to the sky. The full moon will be closer to the earth than it has for almost 20 years!
The moon will rise in the East, over the ocean around 7:30 PM.
This is a great chance to discuss astronomy with your kids. You can learn the phases of the moon, the moon landings, and why it shines! If you have the time, head to the beach to check out the moon and then learn more about it at your library!
