Super duper supermoon

The waxing moon has been putting on an extraordinary show this week, almost like he’s rehearsing for the supermoon on August 1. You may know that supermoons appear closer and brighter than “regular” full moons because they are full at the point in the moon’s orbit that is closest to earth. The pull of the supermoon has been causing super high tides, and our little cove is getting a good flushing of the gunk that’s accumulated this summer. Be sure to mark your calendars for August 30 when we’ll have another supermoon that will also be a blue moon!
