HAPPY NEW WEEK and HAPPY FULL MOON and HAPPY TOTAL LUNAR ECLIPSE!!!
I hope everyone has a joyful week!
Sunday night (15 May) or Monday morning (16 May), depending on your location, is the Full Moon and a Total Lunar Eclipse. The moon should turn a shade of orange, red, or copper.You can insert your city, town, or village into the search box on the Time and Date website to see the full eclipse timing and details for your specific area. I've inserted London in the box for this example.The white-tail deer doe on my patch has had one female fawn this year. The baby looks healthy. Some springs the doe has twins, but I only saw one yesterday evening.Take care, all.
Here's an article about the Total Lunar Eclipse. This will be a very long-duration eclipse in many places, and it's happening 1.5 days before the moon reaches perigee (its closest point to Earth for the month). Some are calling this Full Moon a Supermoon, so it should appear large in the sky.
Good Morning. A bit grey here, with rain on the windows and no sun forecast, unlike yesterday. Never mind, it will be back. Thank you to Diane once again, and also for the interesting links. I stayed up last night to watch the Eurovision Song Contest - not much of a contest really, as most of the entries were dire - some of them couldn't even sing! A good result, with folks around the world united in voting for Ukraine.
Rusty: If you search on the the following link for bird calls, you might be able to ID those birds, but not sure if they'd have an American accent. :-) https://www.birds.cornell.edu/home/ There should be similar web sites for the UK.....
PatO; A friend of mine - decades ago - bought a house waaaay out in then-undeveloped Orange County where deer were always around. Then came the freeways, various developments, etc. and the deer were trapped between two freeways and gradually disappeared. Meanwhile, Los Angeles is building this massive freeway overcrossing for wildlife only. They just started construction. https://www.kpbs.org/news/local/2022/03/25/california-groundbreaking-set-for-largest-wildlife-crossing
Site seems very slow today....
FABULOUS ECLIPSE!! THANK YOU DIANE!!
