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!

This weekend I was lucky enough to visit the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at the Universal themepark in Orlando! It was a great time and a must do for Harry Potter fans.
It was a misty morning as we walked into Hogsmead. The Hogwarts castle was visible above the buildings. Employees and visitors alike were wandering the streets dressed in wizard garb. As we waited in line to enter Ollivanders wand shop, a spontanious conversation sprung up between strangers about the details of each Hogwarts House. You can sip Butterbeer and Pumpkin Juice as you walk around, or have a sit-down meal at the Three Broomsticks (reservations recommended). All of this created a truly magical atmosphere that did justice to one of the best stories of our time.
Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey takes you on a fast-paced, virtual ride around Hogwarts. Waiting in the line that travels through the castle is half the fun! I made it a point to ride the Flight of the Hippogryph multiple times; make sure to bow to Buckbeak! I must admit, I was too much of a Muggle to go on the Dragon Challenge. I did hear from one kid that it was awesome!
